2005 Outback 3.0 Belt/Pulley Problem
My wife's Outback had a squeal coming from the passenger side under the hood that I noticed a day or so ago. On the way home this evening her Battery Light and Brake Light came on and the power steering went out. I figured that the Serpentine Belt just broke, since the car has about 170k on it.
Anyway when we get the car home, I popped the hood and noticed that the belt was in one piece but wasn't on the pulleys. After looking a bit closer I noticed a "pulley" looking thing at the bottom of the engine compartment. I see where it belongs and a pulley just like it still in good shape (turns fine, no squeals) and still attached on the Drivers Side near where this one went, but I'm not sure what it is, where to buy one and how it goes back on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry for the grainy pictures they are from my cell phone.
