Hi,

One of the owners here in the UK has messaged me to help.

One of her pulleys has come off. I've tried to find the correct on on Rockauto but i brings up a different one.

Hers looks like this

The pulley she needs looks like an outside of the belt idler, while the pictured one on rock auto is an inside belt idler. Most likely there are both installed, and rock auto only lists the one.
 






It looks like that’s a tensioner pulley, and she needs the idler.

I've sent her the info. Thanks guys. Dealerships are no help here due to it being an explorer and not a fiesta
