Patrick was great ( he showed up early which was appreciated!), however the part was not. Trying to get a replacement from him. The fan motor he replaced is not OEM quality. I will update this review when the job is done right...

I was hesitant to use a mobile service, but my disability makes it difficult to keep my car maintained. Carlos was professional, competent and reassuring. He arrived at the scheduled time, and I received updates by email as well. He put a barrier down to ensure no oil spilled on my driveway, and showed me some features on the car I was unaware of! He never tried to "upsell" me, which has happened at the mechanic's before. I am very pleased and will use the service again.

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.
