Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement Service & Cost

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.

I am SO happy I found YourMechanic when I did. When my check engine light came on, I immediately took it to a shop to uncover the code. Once they discovered the problem with my timing belt, they were going to charge me a ridiculous amount of money to do the job. On top of that, I would've had to wait a week to book an appointment, there was just no way I was going to wait a week, I was already paranoid driving the car down the street. That evening I did a Google search and found YourMechanic and was so happy to be given a quote right away for drastically less than the shops were quoting me. I booked my appointment right away. Godwin was awesome! He was friendly and extremely professional. I appreciated how he accommodated my address change and communicated every step of the way. My timing belt was repaired in under 3 hours and then took my car around the block to make sure everything ran smoothly. I really appreciated the inspection report that I received in my inbox and all the feedback that was provided for my car. All in all this was a wonderful and very pleasant experience and will certainly be making Godwin my go-to guy for my recommended services. Thank you so much Godwin!!
