Professional Auto Maintenance at Tower Auto Repair : Serpentine Belt Tensioner

by admin on December 17, 2015


The serpentine belt tensioner applies pressure to the serpentine belt, maintaining ideal 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 prevents the accessories from spinning properly, leading to premature wear and noise.

Your auto 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 auto might have. Your friendly Tower Auto Repair service specialist can review your system and let you know if it’s time for a replacement.
