Idler arms - can they fall apart?
It's only a few months since I replaced all the tie rod ends on my van, all looked fine then...
But today I was under there as I replaced my V-belts and noticed that both idler arms are pretty much flogged out. The stud can move up and down freely.
Is it possible for these to come apart? I've got a very big trip in the offing and I will have to get the idler arms from the USA, which will take time.
Am I likely to have a serious problem here?
