I'd love to see your final bill for a 15 minute diagnosis/repair and $40 part retail
Here's a pic of my repair bill.

Sweet...I guessing warranty then?

You'd think using the same POS tensioner for years they'd make a better one. Yours is pretty new and it still got toasted

Yup. She's only 1 year old, but sometimes parts aren't always made to the exacting spec each time and fail prematurely. I'm happy it just made noise and didn't just seize up in the middle of nowhere!

I snapped an alternator belt just as I was starting a road trip once...when I was 17 and didn't know the duct tape rule. Lol

I cleaned it out. This in its self was a feat since it hasn't been cleaned in 2+ years lol. Then I installed a used carpet from my spare bronco to help quiet it down in the cab. I put my old busted grill back on, I put the front bumper back on, I hooked my reverse lights up, I organized and taped all the wiring together under the hood. I started to replace the fan but after I had the old one off and opened the box for the new on I realized they gave me the wrong one. So I put the old fan back on. I attempted to fix my fuel gauge but I didn't succeed. I know what I did wrong so I'll fix it tomorrow.
In the AM I'm gonna go pull the fuel tank out of my spare bronco and put it in my ranger so I can go more than 120 miles without running out of gas. And then I'm drivin 150 miles to go huntin tomorrow evening!

Took a drive on the back roads, in the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas. Here is a triple arch stone bridge built in the late 1800s
