Hey all,
My 95 vs ecotec V6 belt tensioner housing has cracked on the top where the spring sits against the housing. The pully is also whistling..... I was wondering if anyone knows how to get the housing off without taking the heater hoses off by undoing that screw in front of where the spring is located, can that part be changed instead of the whole housing????



Thanks Kasie

Pretty sure there is no easy way unfortunately. Don't leave it for too long as when it fails completely you will be stranded and need a tow home.
