Question about 1996 Mazda MX-6
Hi : I am replacing the alternator idler pulley with a brand new one from the dealer. The new pulley has a lip on it to prevent the belt from coming off.I am not sure why but when i install the new pulley it seems to bolt tight up against the bracket which will not allow the pulley to turn. It is like I need a spacer between the flange face of the nut and the bracket. any thoughts?
Compare the new pulley to the old one. I think you'll find you have been supplied with the wrong pulley.
Very best regards

After adjustment is satisfactory, tighten the idler pulley bolt, and then tighten the adjustment bolt.
Reconnect the negative battery cable.
When replacing more than 1 belt, it is a good idea to make note or mark what belt goes around what pulley; this will make installation easier if you mix up the belts.
