Litens Automatic Serpentine Belt Tensioner -Original Equipment Quality

Part No. 999190A Warranty Details  

See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

Check Vehicle Fit

The front-end accessory drive system on this vehicle has historically had problems with throwing belts in rain and snow. Many of the problems have been the result of system misalignment and/or water ingression. Not being satisfied with the solutions available to consumers, Litens (the world's largest Original Equipment supplier of tensioners) re-engineered the drive and created this "fix-kit". The kit consists of a new tensioner with a grooved pulley (the original tensioner has a smooth pulley) , a new grooved routing idler (the original is smooth), and a double-sided serpentine belt. The grooves on the belt "lock-into" the grooves on the tensioner and routing pulleys making it near impossible to throw the belt. This system will solve the belt throwing problem once and for all!

Product Features:
  • Manufactured by the world's largest Original Equipment supplier of accessory drive tensioners and pulleys.
  • Internal "round spring" technology to provide constant belt tension and alignment throughout its service life. The internal damping design provides quiet, smooth, system performance.
  • Installation instructions included.
  • Spare kit parts available from Litens
  • Professional Mechanics will change this tensioner in about 1 hour.
  • Due to the fact that belts and tensioners have similar Original Equipment "design life targets", it is often a best practice to replace the belt tensioner when replacing a worn or broken belt. Belt removal is required to change the tensioner. Therefore doing both together will extend accessory drive life and lower overall labor versus performing these services separately.

Comments about Litens Automatic Serpentine Belt Tensioner -Original Equipment Quality:

the part was needed for some time, but due to the difficulty in removing and replacing the part I put off the repair for quit some time. the part seems to be of good quality and corrected the long time problem. The part replacement was quit difficult due to the way the vehicle was manufactured. Some additional parts had to be removed to enable the old parts removal and the new part being installed.Delivery was prompt with the parts securely packed.I Can honestly say that I am very pleased with advance autos service. Continue your great service, great prices and you have me as a repeat customer for life

so far it's working

Comments about Litens Automatic Serpentine Belt Tensioner -Original Equipment Quality:

so far it's working fine for my car, I've gone through several belts on my car before discovering this product, I only wish I could have known about it when my car first started eating belts. It's a little hard to get to all the bolts, but well worth the time it takes to do this. Cars should have been equipped with this system in the first place, but then again we wouldn't know about this company. The price is reasonable also as i was checking out other companies and found them to be much higher in price. this product is well worth the time and money to fix the problem on these cars so buy it now

    Comments about Litens Automatic Serpentine Belt Tensioner -Original Equipment Quality:

    I always had the infamous Caravan belt slipping in the rain problem, and it really came to fruition just a few days ago when it came off during a sunny day, hadn't rained all week. I was going on a trip and the first belt came off, and then we stopped to put the spare on, and THAT one also came off not too long after. I knew about the Gates kit, but I didn't have time to have it shipped to me, and I knew Advance carried this brand and auto parts stores typically get shipments in rather quickly, so sure enough I ordered it Thursday morning and it arrived Friday morning and I had it disassembled and reassembled in little over and hour and the problem is totally 100% fixed! My van made the 4+ hour trip home with ease and I would recommend this to anyone with a 93-00 model Chrysler minivan!
