I don't get it, what's strange about this? The stock tires and maybe yoko 601s had an untreaded/slick center strip if I remember correctly.
Torque it to FSM spec just to be sure, if it doesn't move, you are fine.also another thing i had in mind, the bolt on my crank pulley… it doesn’t rotate in a perfect circle under idle, is that normal? I don’t have any issues with the way it runs, no noises, and the pulley itself does not wobble, at least not that I can see… but the bolt clearly does not spin in a perfect circle like i’ve seen on other cars.
Ah okthese are achilles ATR. cheap ass tires, came on the car, but none of the other tires look like this. only this one. that’s the strange thing.
Just saw the video, looks like bent bolt head on both cank pulley and idler. FSM is floating around somewhere online. I am traveling and don't have my personal laptop.i’ll tag you in the video I just posted on another forum, unless you know of a way to see the post without me tagging you, what are the torque specs on these?
Yes there are multiple idlers.on idler? isn’t my idler by AC compressor? that bolt doesn’t move at all.
Put a wrench on it and make sure it's not loose, don't put too much force on it. Long as it's half ass tight, it will last till Friday and dealer can confirm whether it needs to be replaced.Is it something that’s gonna cause issues or can i just deal with it? it’s going into dealer on friday before my trip should i just see if they can replace the bolt or?
