Works like a champ
Snapped the OEM's hex stud right off becuase the middle bolt that ties the top of the spring to the tensioner body was designed to lock the spring in place when the bolt was tightened ! This "feature" defeated the ability to adjust the tensioner simply by loosening only the top bolt.

This updated design allows the spring to move even when the middle and lower bolts are tightened down. The top bolt must be loosened first, though, but that makes much sense than the original design.

What brand is this? Warranty? Actual customer results? I just bought another off brand that started rattling in four whole days.

BEST ANSWER: Sorry but I don't remember the brand. It comes with the standard limited lifetime warranty and to be honest I have never had to cash in on a warranty for any of the parts that I have ordered from 1A Auto over the last several years. I installed the tensioner pulley in March of 2017 on my 2005 Toyota Solara, after breaking the bottom off the original unit. It is not only still working great but it is working in the -20 plus temperatures that the car has been subjected to lately. The belt runs smooth without any vibration. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the part to anyone.
