Check Vehicle Fit

Litens Automotive is the original equipment supplier of this tensioner for this Chrysler/Dodge Neon application. The Litens replacement part meets all form, fit, and performance characteristics of the original equipment part (with the exception of not having the car manufacturer's logo or part number applied to the part). The Litens replacement part maintains the round wire spring, the cast aluminum bracket, a pre-attached foam sealing gasket, and the internal damping components specified by the O.E. manufacturer.

Product Features:
  • Manufactured by the original equipment part supplier to insure proper form, fit, and performance.
  • 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.
  • High Performance Polymer Pulley
  • 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.

      Glad to help, 24hourman! It is tricky to access the bolts. Kindly follow the instructions to access the bolts. Lift and secure the vehicle off the ground. Remove front passenger wheel/tire. The engine needs a jack with a wooden block placed under the front of the oil pan to remove the engine to the body mount that bolt to the 999478 bracket. Once mount is removed lower the front of the engine for access to the lower bolts; then jack the engine up slightly to remove upper bolts. The bracket should be able to be removed from the engine compartment now. Reverse the steps for installation.
