Serpentine Belt Tensioner?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, well my tensioner is noisy! (as all toyota's do!) so was just wondering if anyone knew how much a genuine tensioner is form toyota? and does anyone have a part number for it? Its the 2ZZ-GE t-sport i have. I know it wont be cheap as its got the huge damper on it lol

thanks in advance :)

How bad is it that you need to go and spend that sort of money to replace it?

What age is the car and how many miles?

What sort of noise does it make?

Does anyone know if this is one of those common problems on a TS?

Not so much a common problem. Just a rough bearing noise if that makes sense. Not every tensioner will have the same life span.

i simply diagnosed it with a long screw driver and put the end on near tot he pully and put it up to my ear, u can hear it grinding through the screwdriver and as i move it up the arm away from the pully it gets quiter. Im sure when i take the belt off there will be play in the pully

Now I have had my belt changed I am assuming that it is OK for another 60,000 or 6 years is this correct?

Thanks.
