Having an AC system in your Corvette that is fully operational is important for driver and passenger comfort. The most important part of this is having a working AC belt tensioner. This part is what maintains the belt at the right level of tightness. If it's too loose, your Corvette AC won't work properly. But a belt that's too tight will put unneeded stress on other AC parts. Replace your old compressor belt tensioner with the C5 Corvette 1997-2004 Air Conditioning Compressor Belt Tensioner and keep your AC working perfectly.
This OEM C5 belt tensioner is a direct replacement that is easy to install. It is normal for the tensioner to wear out over time, especially if there's rust or if the pulley got damaged. But replacing it at the first sign (typically the fluttering sound a loose belt) will prevent further damage to the AC system. Don't take the risk of your worn-out belt tensioner causing your serpentine belt to slip out of place. Simply get the Corvette Air Conditioning Belt Tensioner from Corvette Mods with a price match guarantee and you can have a fully restored Corvette.
