honda cr v serpentine tensioner problems

Greetings, I have a cr v 2012, when I bought it 2 months ago I left with the defective serpentine belt tensioner, a Honda mechanic in Orlando replaced it with a new one and after three days faith began with noises like the previous one. It was replaced again by a new one and the same defect began the next day. All this when turning on the a / c. No one explains what happens. Could you inform me, thank you

First question - what exactly is the failure with the belt tensioner? Does it lose spring tension? Does it become misaligned? Keep the old one to disassemble and find out the failure mode.

Second - be sure to always replace the drive belt components in a complete set; drive belt, idler pulley, and belt tensioner - at the same time.

Try these various on-line parts vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com - to list only a few.

In fact, they (RockAuto) list the belt drive component kit from around $58.00 or your vehicle.
