Attention with tensioners

Problem:
Timing belt works with incorrect tensioning in sync system, and a subsequent rupture may occur.

Cause:
Tensioners with high usage time and not replaced as recommended by the manufacturer directly involve the tensioning of the timing system.
The work stop (Figure 1) will cause oscillations to occur in belt tension, which may cause that will subsequently be broken.
The breaking of the tensor structure (fig 2.) Can be caused by excessive torque at the time of application and directly influences the belt tensioning the timing system.

Solution:
Check carefully for wear and if there are any abnormalities in the tensioner when replacing the timing belt (fig. 1 and fig 2.)
Replace the tensioner with a new one. (fig. 3).
Refer to the vehicle manufacturer, inquire about the exchange period of each component manual.
