Should dealer replace under warrantee crank shaft damper pulley protruding out ~1-2mm between pulleys? (Gasket that sits between the two circular pulley wheels, can easily be seen by opening the hood and looking behind the radiator towards the engine face). My local repair shop says yes, but the dealer said it's still within limits, and my warrentee expires 27 Jan 09!
Do you

Hello -

I think this is what you need. To me, if I am reading this right it is out of limits. This says .4 to .5 depending on the engine, again, if I am reading it correctly. Now I may be wrong ..so.........I would ask them to show you in the book and give you a printed copy.

I hope this helps

Hello -

Hey also, it looks like you may have some recalls on your vehicle. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you. I would check these out also.
