Jose

Jose did the best he could under the conditions left for him by this company. On a note, I will never use YourMechanic again due to a consumer issue over a $38.00 part that is new and installed by Jose, but due to consequential findings of other issues, must be destroyed in order to fix the new issue. You will hear a lot of good things about this company, I have contacted the execs at YourMechanic and unless they resolve my issues with the larger issues, I will not be using them again. Sad for YourMechanic and their reputation over a $38 wholesale part.

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.
