Photo DIY- M111 V-Belt Tensioner R/R

As part of the Mother-in-Law's W202 Mega-Service.... I noticed a slight "Squeak" on Acceleration, especially with A/C ON.

Playing around with the V-Belt Tensioner, showed it to be a bit Loose.


I ordered a New Tensioner, AND New Pulley.

After reading multiple sources implying that the Shocks for the Tensioner "Never Break".... I opted to NOT Buy a New one....

*BIG MISTAKE* !!!

After Re-Installing Everything, I turn on the engine, and it sounded like an Old W123 with a OM603 DIESEL ENGINE!!


Yes.... the actual *SHOCK* might not fail (and YES... I *DID* Test the shock prior to Re-Install.... Firm as Firm could be....) BUT!!??? The *BUSHINGS* at either End of the Shock???

DOOOOOHHHHHH!!!!

In My Case, the Lower Shock Bushing was Toast.

Soooooooooooo........ Take *EVERYTHING* Apart, AGAIN!!, and Install a New Shock.



One Note on the Belt Removal? I was LAZY, and simply CUT the Old V-Belt.
