Information - Tensioner Pulley

The main symptom of a faulty alternator belt tensioner is a characteristic whistle, which appears when the car`s electrical systems are submitted to loads, for example, when turning on headlights, high beam or the radio. Apart from that, the indicator for alternator belt failure can light up. This may indicate either wear out of the alternator belt, or that it is insufficiently stretched. The alternator belt is usually located under the hood to the left side of the engine, if standing face to the vehicle.

Before inspecting the alternator belt, you must always turn off the engine, remove the start key and disconnect the negative lead from the car battery. Then, you must visually inspect the belt for any signs of wear out, such as loss of elasticity, tears, cracks or elongations. If there is no problem spotted and the belt doesn`t look worn out, check if it is properly tightened.

If you want to change the alternator belt, you will have to weaken its tension. This will ease the removing of the old belt. Unscrew the tensioner bolt nut. Before doing this, make sure that you know the exact location of the tensioner and that you are familiar with its mechanism. The tensioner device can be represented as a tensioner bolt, or a semicircular rack, depending on the vehicle`s model.
