Details

SOLVE THREE PROBLEMS AT ONCE. The OEM dampener is very well known to cause lots of problems on your 2002-2006 MINI. The bushings wear out causing strange noises and dampener failure. When the dampener wears out, it causes instability in your your belt tension, premature belt failure, shortened life of bushings and tensioner spring, and slippage under full throttle. Also, the OEM dampener can't protect your crank pulley and related parts from getting destroyed in the event a belt fails.

ADJUSTABLE BELT TENSION When you replace the OEM hydraulic dampener with the ALTA Performance Tension Damper, more tension is added to the belt. The ALTA Performance Tension Damper eliminates tensioner bounce and adds more tension than the OEM dampener, allowing better performance and response under extreme driving conditions. BUILT IN TENSIONER STOP Why do you need an adjustable ALTA Tensioner Stop? SImple! At some point in your MINI's life, the serpentine belt that drives the Supercharger and AC, will fail. When it fails, the OEM belt tensioner mechanism plunges into the crank pulley, destroying the tensioner and crank pulley. The adjustable ALTA Tensioner Stop simply replaces the original tensioner dampener solidly holding onto the tensioner arm preventing damage when the belt fails.

SAVE MONEY If your stock belt tensioner pulley is jumping around, your dampener and bushings need to be replaced. This is common on MINI's that have 50K or more miles. You have to buy the whole assembly ($250) to get a new pulley dampener. You can remove this problematic part, install the ALTA Performance Tension Damper, save yourself tons of money in repairs and never have to deal with this problem again.

EASY INSTALLATION The ALTA Adjustable Tensioner Stop is a breeze to install and only requires the motor be jacked up slightly. The tensioner assembly does not need to be removed as the installation can be done right on the engine, saving you about 30 minutes of shop labor to install it!

I am a Canadian customer and at first I was a little skeptical ordering but after first emailing Aaron, now I just keep coming back! Amazing customer service and shipping is fair for custom/import charges. My #1 shop for anything I'll ever need for the Mini!!!

3 orders and I can say that Out Motoring has a customer for life. Shipping has been exceedingly quick, prices are more than fair (beating competition by at least $1), and the reward points are a nice touch to take a little money off the next order. I'll definitely be coming back for more once the weather warms back up.
