What is a Timing Belt Tensioner?

The timing belt runs through several of the engine's main components, including the alternator, power steering, water pump and air con compressor. To work properly, the belt must run at a constant tension in perfect synchronicity. The tensioner ensures that the belt runs at precisely the correct 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 signify that the tensioner needs replacing.

When carrying out work on the timing belt, it's generally recommended that the entire timing system be replaced in one go. 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!
