Re: CLACKING belt tensioner

its busted rofl

make shure the bolt is torqued down right and the tensor is metting str8 with the belt
if it apears to be caused from the belt being to loose the problem could rest with another pulley
does the serphitine belt apear to be old?
tensors are a great junk yard job, kinda fun 2

Sounds like it could be the harmonic balancer. Have a mechanic check that. Mine's bad and they quoted me $350 to get it fixed.
