Tien

After locating my battery in a compartment in the trunk that was almost impossible to open Tien made quick work of replacing the battery and most importantly clearing the computer codes that Beamer owners are driven crazy by. Great calm and thoughtful work at a cost that was 60 less than the Weatherford quote!! Will continue to use Tien and My Mechanic!

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.
