Recommending Replacement Tensioners

Recommending Replacement Tensioners

It’s a mistake to view replacement tensioners simply as commodities. 

When replacing a serpentine belt – especially a squealing one – it’s also crucial to inspect and replace the automatic belt tensioner and associated pulleys if necessary. 

Given the importance of the accessory-drive tensioner, it’s a mistake to view replacement tensioners simply as commodities. 

A replacement tensioner that isn’t designed to match OE specifications for fit, form and function can result in vibration and noise, premature failure and undue stress on engine components.
