Q: Belt tensioner

asked by on

How can I remove my belt if my tensioner has broken?

My car has 92000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If the tensioner lock bolt broke, then drill and use a reverse extractor to remove the bolt. The tensioner bolt should then be replaced with the new tensioner and belt. If you’d like assistance on this repair, a certified YourMechanic technician can come to your location to perform the drive belt tensioner replacement on your vehicle.
