Mark

Mark is good at a lot of things, but most of all, he is REALLY SMART. I had an unconventional, complex problem with a BMW Z3 that he had never seen before... for sure. No problem, he figured it out promptly and then he fixed it. His solution required some new parts and repairing some other parts already on the engine. A piece of cake for Mark. Good job, very well done!

All about Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement

A Drive Belt Tensioner is a pulley mounted to either a spring mechanism or to an adjustable pivot point that is used to keep constant tension on your serpentine belt. That is the big long belt in the front of your engine. The tensioner rides on the outside surface of the belt to put pressure, or tension, on the belt and against the pulleys that drive things like the alternator, power steering, air conditioner, etc.
