I thought that taking the motor mounts out would help me jack the motor up sideways so I could try to get the bolt out. But I stripped it and didn't get it out. As for the idler pulley the bolt broke off completely and the entire pulley fell off. I am trying to figure out if I can get the piece of the bolt out with out pulling the entire motor. And there are no more saturn dealerships so after I get the end of the bolt out I have to find a bolt the same size. And I guess I need to replace the whole pulley because I'm not sure what caused it to break in the first place, the belt is in great condition and everything else was working right. It broke when I cranked it to cool it off before I brought my daughter out, and when I came out it was makeing a crazy noise and when I reached in to turn the car off, it snapped broke and died.
