What’s That Bolt

Hi all just new so pleased to meet you. I wonder if you can help? I have a 2004 Celica with a noise alternator belt idler. I have removed the belt but the fixing bolt for the idler has a weird head. I have a load of Torx sockets but non fit. Does anyone know what’s the name of the bolt head type and what socket fits it.

Many thanks

If you mean the belt tension pulley, on my 2000 GT-s it is a 19mm socket or boxed end wrench. I shaved down a socket to get it to fit good. But also on that, my belt has done the same thing for years. I have changed many tension pulleys and belts, it still happens. What I have started doing is spray belt conditioner on the belt every time this happens. It goes away for a few months. Mine mainly happens when I have the A/C on.
Good Luck

I believe that folks were claiming that there's a "Gatorback" belt the won't squeal. I'd suggest using Search on that!

I think what you may be looking at is the top of the tensioner stud. You want to leave that alone & remove the nut on it.

If you are referring to the one on the pulley of the tensioner, if the pulley itself isn't wobbly or noisy when you turn it I would leave it alone. It's usually the tensioner pneumatic piston that goes bad.
