Anyone know how difficult it would be to replace my belt tensioner or how much one would cost? Thanks in advance!

Why not just take it to the dealer and let them replace it under warrenty? Or is your warrenty up?

That sucks! I got mine replaced under warranty 'cuz it was vibrating and turns out it was loose. The Toyota dealership told me they had a Service Notice that the belt tensioner would loosen up and have to be replaced. (These were on the 2000 models. I'm not sure if they fixed the issue on 2001+)

didn't someone just post some of the TSB's somewhere on this board? If so I bet he posted somthing about the belt tensioner, you should try looking at that. It should tell you what to do.

edit: NM here is the link http://www.radphys.com/ARTICLE_TENSIONER_REPLACEMENT.pdf

Thanks for your help, I am definately looking to do it myself so any instructions would be incredible. Any idea on how much a replacement tensioner would set me back, Im a poor college student! But the sound its making is driving me crazy so I must do something soon!<IMG SRC="http://www.newcelica.org/ubb/smilies/cwm36.gif" border=0>
