Drive/serpentine belt tensioner

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how you test the tensioner for effectiveness or wear? I think mine might need replacing but not 100% and don't want to waste money.

Is this a common wear item on the connects? Difficult job to replace or no?

Any help from someone who has experience with this part appreciated.

cheers,

Al.

The thing that happens to the Tensioner  most of  the time is the bearing fails.  If you take the belt off and check the pulley for wobble.  The bearing should be free and smooth with no noise.
