Dayco No Slack Automatic Belt Tensioners are specifically built to outperform and outlast competitive OE parts. Each component is built to resist rust, endure the toughest of conditions while promoting quieter performance and longer life.

Product Features:
  • Manufactured with a specially coated patented flat wire spring to allow the internal tension to be concentric, thus providing a more even degree of constant tension
  • The patented Deflected Arm Plate dampens arm movement, prolonging the life of the tensioner by limiting the amount of rotational movement
  • The required plastic elbows & o-rings are included
  • The heavy duty cast aluminum spring case resists cracking and fatigue

Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Belt Tensioner:

Also don't understand negative reviews. Only bearing is on the belt pully itself and you can replace that without taking apart full assembly. To me sounds like that installer does not know what he is doing. The leaks one experienced must have come from not cleaning the sockets good enough the fittings go into. I found when I did this its still going strong after 67 thousand miles after replacement

    Do not understand all the negative reviews. Found this brand to last over five years since I installed it and still in perfect shape. Wont hesitate to use again if I ever need another. I doubt that I will ever need another

      Put in my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. Lasted a year and a half and 30,000 miles then bearing went out. Caused engine to overheat. Store replaced with same. Additiona cost to me antifreeze, belts and bought aluminum water connections. Should have lasted much longer. Probably best to buy better brand=Liten is OEM.

      Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Belt Tensioner:

      Removed old tensioner due to tensioner bearings locking up and chewed up the tensioner assembly. Finished installing the new one and upon installing the serpentine belt, the bolt used to loosen the belt stripped on the first attempt at installing the belt. Had no choice but to bringit back to the store and return for the same brand as they do not carry the Dohrman or Litens brands.

      I have removed and installed 5 of these in the last 10 years on my own vehicles and family members and never had any issues. Dayco needs to stick with what they know, making Belts. Spend the extra $20 and get the Dohrman brand if they have it in stock. The Dayco is lighter and cheaper made than the OEM.

      Also buy the Aluminum elbows for $11 rather than use the cheap plastic ones or you will be removing the tensioner again in 12-18 months to replace the elbows. they crack right at the rubber seal and will leak.

              I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

            • A:

              The belt tension-er is set at manufacture. it cannot be adjusted. if you want to loosen the tension-er to replace the belt. simply turn the bolt in the center of the pulley counter clockwise(on this model) with a wrench.
              it is under spring pressure so be care full!!!
