Incredible. Nicest guy and took the time to explain everything that was going on to me. He even saved me some money on duplicate parts that were ordered automatically through the quote. Now that's someone I can trust. Super friendly, came on time and even called me the day before so he could be prepared.

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.
