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
  • Contains a metallic locator pin built to withstand extreme drive demands and properly locate the tensioner for installation
  • The patented Deflected Arm Plate dampens arm movement, prolonging the life of the tensioner by limiting the amount of rotational movement
  • This tensioner is another CARQUEST by Dayco┬« product proudly made in the USA

After returning to Advance Auto to get the right part number tensioner (89230 vice 89252, online catalog problem), I installed it and ran the engine. It seemed to work OK. However, during a trip, my wife complained about a "rattle". When she returned, I heard a "clicking" noise which I noticed corresponding to tensioner movement. The noise has gone away, but after a conversation with a Dayco tech, I may end up having to replace it if the noise returns.

Best Uses

  • Replacement Of Worn Part

Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Automatic Belt Tensioner:

this product was great easy to install and a direct fit from the worn out factory part. it does what it is supposed to do and keep the correct tension/deflecting rate on the belt. make sure when you replace this part that you put a little bit of thread lock on the bolt to help keep the vibrations from ever backing or out or loosen the bolt you don't need a lot

  • Q:

    When installing this Dayco belt tensioner, do I need to use a torque wrench? If not how is it bolted to the engine? Also, do bolts come with the tensioner?

      A:

      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. Bolts are not included with the tensioner.
