Cayenne's Auto Videos for Los Altos Drivers: Serpentine Belt Tensioner

cayLove the movies?  So do I, hi Cayenne here and I have a great video for you!

The serpentine belt tensioner applies pressure to the serpentine belt, maintaining prime 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 car 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 automobile might have. Your personal and trust Allied Auto Works service specialist can survey your system and let you know if it’s time for a replacement.

Give us a call and tell them Cayenne sent you!
