Continuing with the maintenance videos on my 160k 2014 Mazda 6 GT, today I tackle the Belt Tensioner and replace the drive belts.I got this car with 53K in A...
Yea I have a very little squeaking noise and it is driving me crazy. The belts are brand new and it doesn't quiet the noise when I spray it with belt spray, so I am almost completely sure it is the tensioner. And a new tensioner assembly is about $300, new bearing $9 so I would save a lot of money.
Our drive belt tensioners are manufactured to meet and exceed the OEM specifications and guidelines. Our value-orientated belt tensioners will leave your car performing to its best capabilities. It pays to invest in quality, the last thing you want is to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with a broken-down car.
RealOEM calls it a hydrolic belttensioner, part number 11287509476. Oh, they want the core back it seems. Yes, there is a strut on the tensioner assembly that is oil filled, as well a spring for proper belt tension.
