How to Repair a Bad Idle Pulley


  • My 2000 Porsche Boxster S uses a 5202-2RS bearing. These bearings are readily available through these links on Amazon and Ebay. Other Early 986 Boxsters 96-99 might use a 6203-2RS bearing. Since there seems to be a couple of different sizes used, it might be best to pull off the bearing to confirm the size before ordering.
  • If for some reason you need to replace the entire idle roller or pulley, it's part # 99610211856 This should be the part number for both the 2000 Boxster S (986) and the 996 Porsche, but you should always verify it's the same on your model. Sometimes Porsche makes changes to these parts.
