Sorry, screwed up , here is the correct rebuild kit..............AISIN TKT-021..............

Installed myself and saved about $ 1k in labor.......if you are half way mechanically-inclined, you can do this job yourself.....otherwise here in San Diego, it is about a $1,200 job at a mechanic shop......

DIY if you can....$ 180 for rebuild kit on Amazon.....great price and all the right parts.....this is the kit I installed.

also, the Aisin TKT-001 works as well........except this kit does not contain the belt tensioner part......

Personally I would buy the TKT-021

Just take your time and be methodical. do you own a factory service manual ? they are worth their weight in gold....

If you dont, just watch some good You tube videos. I can send you a .pdf file of the procedure out of the FACTORY Service manual if you want. Let me know !
