The timing belt runs through several of the engine's main components, including the alternator, power steering, water pump and air con compressor. In order to work properly, the belt must run at a constant tension in perfect synchronicity. The tensioner ensures that the belt runs at exactly the right tension, so that the alternator can produce enough power to turn the pulleys that drive all of the other components.

The timing belt tensioner consists of  four parts: the base, tensioner arm, spring, and tensioner pulley. If a fault develops with any of these, it can cause the tensioner to fail. If you hear a rattling sound when starting up the engine or accelerating, it may be a sign that the tensioner needs replacing.

When carrying out work on the timing belt, it's normally recommended that the entire timing system is replaced in one go, as this helps ensure maximum efficiency and a longer lifespan. So, we would recommend replacing the  tensioner pulleys, dephaser pulleys, timing belt, and other fittings at the same time. Order one of our timing belt kits to get everything you need!
