Hi all,

My local independent shop wants $420 to replace the tensioner pulley in my 2008 RAV4 LTD.

Does this sound about right?

Thanx!

OK, that sounds a little high. Are you sure it's the tensioner and not the water pump? My water pump got noisy at 42K miles and the Toyota dealership charged $484 to my extended warranty. I would get a second opinion from another shop. If they are not familiar with that V6 they may be estimating too much labor.

Hi James -

When I took the car in for repair today they found out that it was the water pump. How about that!! It is going to cost almost $700 for the repair. Too much, but I live in a resort area, and everything is expensive!!

Thanx!
