Automotive Tips from AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair: Serpentine Belt TensionerPosted December 29, 2019 7:36 AM
The serpentine belt tensioner applies pressure to the serpentine belt, maintaining optimal tension to drive the accessories like the alternator and A/C compressor. At AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair we know that 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 for Tucson drivers.
Your vehicle manufacturer 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 car might have. Your friendly and professional AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair service advisor can inspect your system and let you know if it’s time for a replacement.
