Hello everyone,
I am late on my accessory belts replacement (the ones on the left outside of the engine).
Last time I took my car to the dealership at around 100k, they recommended replacing them.
I recently hit 140k miles I, bought it at 75k.
My question is, should I replace the 2 belts only or do I need to replace all the pulleys and tensioners as well ?
Thank you!

Just the belts, as long as the pulleys and tensioners are in good working order. No noises or rattles, etc.
Thank you. I don’t have any noise coming from that area except from the drive belt that sometimes squeak on cold weather or cold startup.
I replaced one of the tentioner pulleys twice because I drove through mild thunderstorm floodings. The mechanic said that water got into the bearing and removed the grease. That was making those pulleys produce a bad noise.
