    I replaced the serpentine belt on my 05 tacoma V-6 engine

    When I had the belt off I was checking all the pulley's

    I noticed that the #1 idler, the one on the top left hand side has pretty good amount of play in it.

    Like if I wobbled it side to side could feel pretty good amount of play

    Is this normal? I'm not getting any noise from the pulley or if I watch the pulley/belt with engine running everything looks straight.

    Should I replace it?

    Thanks for any info...
