Technical Information:
Why Should I Replace My Serpentine Belt Tensioner? Customers may want to consider replacing the serpentine belt tensioner when performing VW timing belt service. The serpentine belt tensioner is easily accessible during the timing belt service and replacement during this time will save labor costs. Many times the bearing in the pulley will unexpectedly fail due to age and higher mileage. Also in some cases the tension spring or damper part of the tensioner can become weak giving the serpentine belt insufficient belt tension. We have seen serpentine belt tensioner failure as early 70,000 miles.

Diagnosing Serpentine Belt and Tensioner Problems: Accessory belt (aka serpentine belt) problems can be easily misdiagnosed, particularly those with an over-running alternator pulley. After hearing belt noises coming from the accessory belt area and upon visual inspection, many notice excessive belt and tensioner vibration and flapping. Oftentimes this is misdiagnosed as a bad belt and weak accessory belt tensioner spring. In most cases the excessive belt vibration and flapping is caused by the over-running alternator pulley going bad.
