Apparently this is the outside “shoe” on what is called the “harmonic balancer” that is bonded to the wheel itself. It has come unbonded if you will. This will entail a different kind of repair.

Let’s see if the hive mind can help with this one. My brother says he needs to replace the serpentine belt in the 2005 Acura RL.

Thanks for any help you can give. Here’s a Morgan without crosses eyes for your time.
