Engine Mechanical problem
1988 Mazda 323 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 350000 miles
I had to replace the water pump on my car, when I took on the task of disassembling the car to replace it I notice debris underneath the timing belt. Further dis assembly lead to me to discover that the bolt that holds the timing belt tensioner in place had sheared off. I was wondering if I have any alternatives to pulling the engine and drilling out the remaining part of the bolt. There are two bolts that go into the engine underneath the tensioner, but I didnt want to remove them not knowing what the really went to. Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated, thank you for your time.
