This is not a new issue but its been awhile and I was wondering if there has been solution to the availability of the mechanical fan belt tensioner PN 10186118?

Can they be rebuilt?  If so, who offers this service?



PS  I am aware that a second electrical fan can be added but that is a relatively expensive fix (that includes procuring a used fan) for what used to be a $25-30 part.

So Ill tell you what I did, I took the tensioner apart cleaned the shaft that the spring rides on since it was seize, the bearing you can buy at autozone for a few bucks but it requires you to cut the outer race of the plastic pulley. I then took some JB weld and glued the tower, glued the bearing onto the plastic pulley and called it done... Good luck finding a replacement too...
