I have a question about the drive belt.  Specificlly the idler and tensioner pulley.   Someone told me the bearings are the same part.  Is this true?  What is the part numbers?

I would like to change them for preventive maintence.  thank you
Congratulations on the new MINI.  

We are not aware that the bearings in the tensioner can be replaced.  We can only provide the entire assemblies.

The R56 MINI does not use an idler, but has a friction wheel that controls the 'on-demand' water pump.

Hello,

I am the new owner of a 2007  (title says 2004 , but it is a 2007) mini cooper.  I purchased to help my commuting expenses.  When I purchased from the original owner I knew the car would need a few things.

I changed out the thermostate housing because it was leaking, now that is good.  

I have a question about the drive belt.  Specificlly the idler and tensioner pulley.   Someone told me the bearings are the same part.  Is this true?  What is the part numbers?
