I was adjusting my x-belts today and cracked the X end motor-idler 🙁 

Do I need to take the whole printer apart to replace the part?

No, not required. You only have to remove the X-axis from the Z-axis (remove top holder) and possibly remove some cables from the extruder so that you can lift the X-axis above the Z-axis. The x-axis idler part is just plugged on.

Phew, that's good to know. I was dreading a complete teardown.
