Just some info on fixing excessive Tensioner Rattle while at idle.

See attached pictures...

- remove belt tensioner (2x6mm allen & 1x5mm allen)
(you might have to pry the tensioner off of the end of the lever)
- remove tensioner roller (13mm bolt)
  • remove airbox
  • slide tensioner lever out to the left
  • inspect lever and bushings (in mounting bracket)
  • if lever has wear marks and bushings are worn, replace
bushings & lever.
***worst case, if the bracket is also worn, a new bracket
will need to be installed***
- bushings can be a pain to remove
  • install bushings (tap into place)
  • grease/lubricate bushings/bracket
  • lubricate lever and install
(there should be rubber dust seals (1 on either end of lever)
- install tensioner & roller

Part number for bushings:
028 903 313

I'm just rebuilding my engine and I'm at this stage of game. Thanks for confirming the part number for the sleeve.

Reading the Bentley manual I chuckled on the torque spec for that tiny middle bolt on the tensioner - 25Nm !
At best guess;10Nm tops or that bolt will be snapping
