Richard did an excellent job on replacing my motor mounts. My neighbors were so impressed they starting coming over and asking for the phone number. Richard was honest about all aspects of what he was doing, showed me the parts he took out and showed me the defects. I felt super confident he wasn't trying to rook me! MyMechanic is what the future of auto repair needs to be! THANK YOU RICHARD, YOU ROCK!! See you soon!

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.
