W210 serpentine belt replacement

My belt looks worn (65,000 miles) so I searched the archives for any info. Replacing the belt sounds straightforward (remove the fan, skin of knuckles, etc) but the search came up with a few horror stories relating to pulley failure and problems with the harmonic balancer shaft.

My question is what other components should I inspect (or replace for preventitive maintenance purposes). Please provide details of how to inspect the parts, what to look for, etc. The car is running fine.

Thanks in advance,
