RB26DETT Timing Belt Tensioner Failure

All the balls are on the left side. 

Sean Kirby, aka the other Sean, or am I the other Sean, either way, posted these pictures of a tensioner bearing failure.   He says that this is most likely the original timing belt.  The belt, tensioner, idler, and spring should be replaced every 60,000 miles.  If you don't know if it has been replaced, with certainty, replace it. Always a good idea to do the water pump at the same time, as it is behind the timing belt.
