Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Drive Belt Tensioner all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

Tensioners usually come with pulleys; they are normally replaced together. Also, when replacing a tensioner, the drive belt usually must be removed. A mechanic may recommend replacing the belt as well.

How it's done:

  • Check for any noise in the engine (usually a squeaky or grinding noise).
  • Remove the drive belt(s) (in most cases).
  • Inspect drive belt pulleys.
  • Check the drive belt tensioner.
  • Remove and replace the tensioner if faulty.
  • Start car to see if noise is gone.

Our recommendation:

Your drive belt tensioner should always be inspected when your drive belt is serviced. During routine maintenance and inspection, your drive belt system should be reviewed to make sure that all the components are in working order. The drive belt tensioner will usually last longer than the drive belts, so as long as your tensioner is inspected or replaced when your drive belts are, your belt system should remain in good shape.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Drive Belt Tensioner?

Unusual noise (squeaky or grinding sound) every time you start the engine.

How important is this service?

The air conditioning, power steering, and alternator in your vehicle are given power through the drive belt. The belt is attached to both the crankshaft and these systems, and transfers power from the engine to drive each of these components. The drive belt tensioner is responsible for keeping the tension in the drive belt, which allows it to continue moving and transferring power. When the drive belt tensioner fails, the tension in the drive belt will begin to diminish, and the vehicle will not operate as well.

Casey

Casey is awesome. I had a wonderful experience working with him. He explained very clearly what the issue with my car was. I definitely recommend him to anyone in the Seattle area with car problems. PLUS he isn't trying to take advantage of your lack of knowledge about cars like the many big repair shops do. And the biggest benefit? I didn't have to tow my car to a mechanic. Casey came to my house. How awesome is this service? Freakin' Awesome I say. haha

Clarissa

Clarissa was wonderful! She is very friendly, knowledgeable and honest. If I could give her 10 stars I would. I usually work on my on car so I have an idea of how much work goes into repairs. I am the type of person who laughed at other mechanics and walked away when they tried to sell me a service I didn't need or for a ridiculous price. From the start she responded very quickly to my messages answering my questions and even added a last minute service the day before she was scheduled to come to my home. I had an old car being held together by rust and prayers. I had some parts and she immediately called to remove the cost from my bill. She showed up on time, listen to what I had to say and then looked over my car. She pointed out the issues and helped me weigh the pros and cons of how to handle the situation. I would highly suggest her to anyone who wants a mechanic they can trust!
