udp\'s coming loose!!!!

so i was driving around today and i start to hear this ticking noise from my engine and im like WTF, so i pull over into a parking lot and i thought maybe it was my intake vibrating but i seen the pulley wiggling a little bit and instead of 3 bolts holding it on there, there is only one bolt,what do i do to fix this problem fast just go to a hardware store and look for bolts that might fit or take it to a dealership and be like my bolts fell out can y'all put some new ones in real quick

I had the SAME problem. I went to AutoZone with the last bolt and purchased similar bolts. Then used red locktite on all three bolts... we will see how that holds up.

Here is a pic of a FS UDP.



Where are the 3 bolts you guys are referring to?

Re: udp\'s coming loose!!!!

Did you torque them down to spec initially, or just guesstimate when it was "tight". Yeah, a lock washer or red locktite would be good insurance if it was torqued to specifications and still vibrated loose.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Uhhhh... DAMN people!!!..No No No! Listen man, obviously you had nothing to do with the installation of this part because you dont know what it is, do yourself a favor and take it back to the people who did the maint. for you...

Demand your money back for that portion of the job. Also just put the stock pulley back on then if they come loose all the time, thats pretty scary...

Take the time, do your own maintenance if you can in the future bro, that way you have total satisfaction and also if you ever break down you know what to do...
