Auto Videos for Thorold Drivers: Serpentine Belt Tensioner

Posted on November 10,15 by napademo

The serpentine belt tensioner applies pressure to the serpentine belt, maintaining prime tension to drive the accessories like the alternator and A/C compressor. The service life of the belt tensioner is the same as the belt itself, so they should always be replaced together. A worn tensioner inhibits the accessories from spinning properly, leading to premature wear and noise.

Your car maker has a recommended mileage interval for serpentine belt replacement. A complete accessory drive system service replaces the serpentine belt, the belt tensioner and any idler pulleys your automobile might have. Your knowledgeable Hartzel Automotive & Marine tech can inspect your system and let you know if it’s time for a replacement.
