“Great Belt, But Make Sure That the Letters Read In The Proper Direction If Using The Timing Marks! ”

I knew the right orientation of the letters (reading right side up when looking at the belt from the motor side IIRC), but somewhere along trying to get everything lined up the fourth time (since I didnt use zip ties briefly like someone suggested), I got it reversed. It started up fine, but after driving it, a couple of codes that indicated it was erroneous were thrown by the engine . Took it all apart and reversed it the following day and was good.Keep the trap to the tensioner, its really helpful when you will need to install the tensioner again, and be certain you compress the tensioner gradually, otherwise you will break it (along with your arms, yes it’s that powerful!) .

“And I Thought It Would Be Good To Change The Tensioner Pulley As Well”

I purchased a kit for the first time, since I had never worked on this car since I owned it, and I thought it’d be helpful to change the tensioner pulley also. The kit has been put together! There were basic instructions for how to install the new pump, the tensioner needed a pin pre-installed to permit ease of installation (instructions state to pin down the shaft, and then pull out the pin when the belt is installed). It was all in a box which kept the things from damaging and moving any thing in the box. I will purchase Aisin!

“Nice Kit, Fit My 2003 Toyota Highlander 3”

Nice kit, Fit my 2003 toyota highlander 3.0 v6. Takes the weekend. You want an impact wrench to set the flywheel back on. I used a U tubing trick of jamming my wrench agains the front of the control arm and hit the start switch to have away the nut. Kind of scary and it tries. . .dont hit the wrench or the twice may go flying. Your are suppose to turned the two revolutions once the belt has been set up but I went too far . . .but thats ok if and as long as you marked the time marks great one lines up . . .they will all line up.I required to jack up the motor a inch or so to have the engine mount off due to the long strands hitting the frame.

“Excellent Product And Amazon Value! ”

Exact parts fit for my 2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited with V-6. If you’re replacing the timing belt you need to replace the water heater to save money and time later on. I had been doing the 90,000 preventative care to replace the timing belt so I decided to get this kit based on my study and the reviews on Amazon. At my request, my favorite Toyota Certified Tech John R. performed a LOF with Artificial, a coolant flush, 4 wheel alignment check, and replaced the time belt/waterpump/tensioner bearings/idler using the Aisin TKT-026 Engine Timing Belt Kit with Water Pump/matched idler and tensioner bearings together with dealer provided crankcase and camshaft seals installed for less than what the dealer would have charged to replace the timing belt. John R. remarked that the first water pump was leaking and he showed me that the first water pump with a pinkish build-up of solidified coolant residue on the outer pump casing. He advised me that the replacement kit has been an superb kit (OEM) and remarkable price. To sum up, Amazon Prime and outstanding value service.
