Squeaky Tensioner


Recommended Posts

After recently renewing my water pump, I noticed that a new squeak seemed to have appeared. I think that it is the small tensioner that lies beneath the aircon compressor and takes up the slack in the belt for the airco. Does anyone know if this is easy to replace or even if it can be adjusted to take out the play/noise/wear?

Thanks

If your talking about a TD5 or tdi, if you go to a main dealer they will tell you that you can only replace the whole thing which is £70/£80.

Truth is you can replace just the bearing.
