    The belt tensioner is not strong enough, when engine is at an idel the tensioner constantly makes vibration noises and you can see the the pulley chattering from poor spring tension.

            A:

            Yes, a mechanic should be able to replace this; however, it all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience.
