  9. 16V (and others) custom tensioner concept

    Engine - Turbo & Block
    Thought I'd throw out an idea to see what everyone thinks: Changed the timing belt on my Masi 16V motor, and now the tensioner is making a squealing noise. I know people have been successful re-greasing them, but I had a thought that might be better for any situation where the tensioner is hard...

    My engine has a rattle coming from the block and squeals a bit between gear changes which leads me to think the timing belt tensioner is bad or the spring broke. I ordered a new timing belt component kit but as far as I can tell, replacement timing belt tensioner springs aren't sold anywhere...
