I agree. Replace the tensioner. It'* a common problem I see come through my shop. The entire tensioner arm will seperate from the case and push the belt out slowly, and tear it to pieces on it'* way.

While on the topic of belts. I am in the process of replacing the motor on my 97 ssei. The motor mount on this year is the most F**KED UP design I have ever seen. The passenger motor mount/engine bracket goes thru the belts to the engine. Replacing the belts on this year will take alot more than a 15mm wrench. Has anyone had any experience with this years setup???
