Robert is THEEEE abbbb' like'soooo'lute best and coolest mechanic I have met and dealt with, EVER! If he were surgeon I'd trust him with my life w/o a second thought. No one enjoys having problems with their cars, but if you have one, count yourself blessed and lucky if Robert shows up to get things back to running and ship shape. Nothing less than a five in my book, and six if it were possible to add one more. ^5 Robert!

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.
