Sorry for the delayed response but i finally got around to this. I took the TB cover off to find the toothed idler gear completely shredded!!! The inner ball bearings were all over the place and falling to the floor as I was taking off the cover.
If I order a TB kit and replace the components should I be ok? Could this have caused some other damage elsewhere? Dont want to invest the time and money on replacing timing belt components only to find out that this failed idler gear caused some internal engine damage as well. Any thoughts?
Here some pics of the failed gear:
