Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement Service

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.

Mercedes-Benz CL500 - Radiator - Houston, Texas
If you read nothing beyond this first sentence, just know that Robert is magnificent! On my repair day, Robert showed up promptly at the requested appointment time, sending several heads-up texts prior to his visit. Upon arrival, he very kindly and pleasantly introduced himself, then immediately proceeded to review the requested service and closely inspected the vehicle before bringing out his heavy duty tools. Radiator replacement can be tricky, but Robert tackled it with ease and with a highly professional methodology which can only come from longtime mechanical knowledge and experience. Not only was Robert careful to keep the job site clean and orderly, but he also took delicate care in disassembling components in and around the engine. Once the radiator was successfully replaced and the coolant levels and functionality restored to factory specs, Robert went above and beyond by scanning the vehicle computer for any fault codes, etc. He diagnosed a misfire and tested some ignition components, after which he very kindly suggested what needed to be repaired in the near future. Overall, I will gladly admit that I am very satisfied with the repair work received by Robert. I cannot thank him and YourMechanic enough, as the service received was excellent, affordable, precise, professional and highly convenient. I would highly recommend Robert as a mechanic, as his knowledge, insights, technique and professionalism are without equal.
