Just ordered parts from Rmeuropean yesterday to do this. My total was $111 shipped. Seems like a good site and was the most reasonable price I could find. I had my car in for the battery cable recall and the tech noted the tensioner was loose and walking the belt off slowly. I looked at it today and it looked OK, but I figured better safe than sorry. I'm not sure if the tech unloaded the belt and put it back on, and that's why it looks OK now, or if they were just trying to squeeze some cash out of me. But, I figured I might as well go ahead and do the repair myself. This will be the first thing I've had to repair myself out of warranty on this car. I've done several oil changes, though.

I've read this guide probably 10 times to make sure it's as straightforward as it looks. I'm thinking I can manage it. I'm headed to harbor freight and/or Sears to get a breaker bar and the torx set. wish me luck! Thanks for contributing this, OP!
