86 GL-10 Turbo A/C belt tensioner pt #
Posted 23 July 2003 - 04:48 PM
I am trying to replace the A/C belt tensioner with a new part - local dealer says they can't find it. They called Subaru Canada and they don't list it either.
This is the tensioner that bolts to the alt bottom bracket, has a nut at the pivot point with a bolt that goes through it to the bracket. Loosen bolt, use nut to tension the A/C belt, then lock down bolt - that thing
I don't think that's right so I thought I'd ask here if anyone has the part number or knows how to get it.
I tried the wreckers, but have not found a smooth turning one and I'm tired of looking.

I haven't used them to order parts, YMMV. Hope this helps.

you can replace just the bearing. much cheaper. dealership charged me $14, and it's easy to swap out. marco

the car will run fine without the idler/tensioner in place, the compressor just wont run because itll slip with one belt on it...
