UPDATE:


Walp... I finally got to mess with the PS belt today during a standard 10,000 mile oil-change... I checked the belt deflection with the passenger tire off and it seemed a bit loose/stretched/oil/dry-rotted from age and the desert dryness... anyway... I pried on the adjuster to create more tension, then tightned the bolts back up -- and ALL FIXED! No more noiseses or 'choppiness' -- so in the end IT WAS JUST A LOOSE BELT...

Imma add a new PS belt for my wish-list for the next 10k oil change... Q: Does anyone have a Toyota part # for this belt or an OEM equivalent... I know Amazon has a Gates... lookin for OEM Toyota part is possible!

I THINK...that the Bando offering is the OEM belt. It is on my Insight, but I haven't found definite evidence for Toyotas. P/N: 3PK760 for P/S on a '95.

I like both Bando and Gates, but I prefer Bando.

Cool... looks like BANDO is made in Japan or OEM quality... so I will prolly go that route... it's a Camry... she's worth it!

I've heard Bando is what Toyota uses. I've used their belt. It's cheap and feels very solid quality. For the price of it, I'd replace it in a heart beat.

Yeah, these manually tensioned systems suck. Worse if it doesn't use a jackscrew like the alternator.

I'd use this tool, about $20: https://www.amazon.com/Gates-91132-B.../dp/B000CRDLZM
I was not able to tension it as per spec, it's impossible with the amount of room and the little leverage point you have to tension and tighten the bolt.

Yeah that's why I said the manually tensioned system really sucked, what a cheap design.

You have to use a pry bar carefully between the pump and engine block. It can be done so don't give up.

Bando is what they are using lately. Dayco, Goodyear, and Mitsuboshi were OEM as well.

See if rockauto with shipping is still cheaper than O'Reilly or NAPA. I personally prefer Gates.
