Took Car to Mecánico; Returned Broken and Unbalanced, But Not Tense — 2 Comments

  1. Looks like a belt tensioner to me. It was a spring loaded arm with pulley at the end of it and the pulley end obviously broke off. You should find the rest of it still hooked to the front of the engine unless the securing bolt/nut let go as well then all you might find is a hole.

    • Thanks Kirk, I agree with your prognosis. You would think we could spot where it broke. The round part visible in pic is a weight. I’m going to add another pic from different angle.
