cdthomer Posted June 18, 2017 Share Posted June 18, 2017 I replaced a bunch of stuff on my Legacy today. After freaking out because I accidentally spun the driver side cam 180° and just generally being tired from working on my car all day, I put everything back together and didn't realize until I was showering just now that I forgot to pull the pin on the new tensioner. This is probably a stupid question but that's kind of a big deal isn't it? Although the belt has RIDICULOUS tension on it now (took forever to get it on trying all different orders of slipping it over the pulleys) I imagine it will loosen up just a bit as it wears correct? I did start it and it runs fine, but I guess I just need somebody to tell me to cowboy up and pull the timing cover back off to remove the pin... Sorry if this is a silly post, but this is the first vehicle I've had with a timing BELT and I'm exhausted! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
