Buick Regal Serpentine Belt Tensioner Pulley May Wear Out

(21 reports)

The serpentine belt tensioner pulley may wear out. Our technicians tell us that in order to get a new pulley from General Motors you must purchase a complete belt tensioner assembly.

 

Horrible sound, A/C Tensioner Pulley needs to be replaced. A/C still works, as does heater. But it is about to go out (causes a grinding sound in front left engine area, that changes pitch when you hit A/C switch or heater switch) -
Piulley spun wopperjawed. And threw sparks and belt started to come off. -
Belt broke on the car. Replaced the belt. High pitched squeal and the new belt was trashed. Then replaced the tensioner and belt, the car ran as good as new. -

This problem occurred after a catalytic converter replacement. The first shop said that this would run me $385 to replace the Drivebelt tensioner as well. Luckily, I had another shop replace the pulley for $90 and it did the trick. -
