Do you use rust penetrant on a new tensioner?

David Curtis Crowell says:

just received my new tentioner from A1

edward negron says:

Question, in this video the tensioner pully does not have a black tab on the outer rim opposite of the pully. Also the one in this video has a silver shield on. The pully on your link has the black tab along with no shield showing a black ring where the part bolts to the car. May you explain why the one in the link looks different than the one in the video?? or what is the purpose of the black tab??

Luciano Sarno says:

Thanks to you this job was super easy

Eddie Furbee says:

Another tool for the job? pocket knife. .just cut the belt if you're replacing it anyway. .I did

Dr. Crentist says:

Great videos again.
Is it necessary to remove belt completely to replace tensioner?

Ryan McGeeney says:

7:17 Is the amount of torque necessary to release tension on the tensioner adjustable? I only ask because when I did this install, there was just no way I was getting the new tensioner to move without about 2 feet of pipe on the end of my ratchet. It was absolutely not going to move with just the amount of leverage I got from the ratchet handle alone.
