Recommended Posts

Been reading the site for awhile but never posted.Site is great & very informative.Im having a problem with 2000 base boxster, owned bout 2yrs w/ only 45000 miles. Polyrib belt came off while driving(long story).When I got her home,I accessed the engine(info from u guys on this site).Seems like belt didnt break but slipped off & was in engine bay.Noticed that Deflection roller #2(lower one) seperated from cover plate.Any assistance in making this repair would be great,as I will attempt this myself.Pics attached .Thanks.
