General LSX Automobile Discussion - Tensioner pulley problem?
06-04-2012, 08:58 PM
I just noticed when I started my 01 ws6 tonight that I heard kind of a ticking noise. Popped the hood and noticed the one of the tensioners was moving slightly? It was the one on the top left near the battery, I'm thinking that is the tensioner pulley? Anyways, I'm guessing i'm going to have to replace it. Any suggestions on what kind of pulley and where to get it for a decent price? Thanks a lot guys!

They usually have some play in them normally. Are you sure its not the famous sewing machine ticking.

Yes, some movement of the tensioner within it's operating range is normal. If the pulley bearings were going bad, then you'd hear a squeak and/or you'd be able to wobble the pulley on the tensioner with the belt removed.
A ticking sound is not usually associated with tensioner/pulley issues.
