Just getting ready to put-on a new serpentine belt and wondering if anyone has had the tensioner fail. Thinking for $50 I should just throw-on a new one at the same time..... Well, that are a new pulley for $20.

Thanks

I started to hear a little noise from mine about a year ago.

I jammed the straw on the aerosol can of Liquid Wrench white lithium grease in as far as I could and gave it a shot. Haven't heard it since.

I went back out to check just now....still quiet.

But now I'm worried.:huh:

Can't recall if i was here that I saw a couple of 'guess what?' threads.

A replacement pulley is only $20 at RockAuto, so I went that route a few minutes ago. (i'd think the actually spring mechanism would last quite a while) $20 is cheap for the amount of highway driving I do working races.
