1993 wagon Timing belt tensioner 900

Hi all,
Still working on the 940 wagon. The timing belt tensioner sounds gritty so I'm trying to replace the roller. Are there any tips on getting this whole assembly out to replace the roller have one heck of a time.
Thanks, as always.
Joel

The tensioner gets replaced as an assembly. Loosen the nut on the stud. Pry the roller against the spring and be prepared to stick a drill bit or small diameter philips screwdriver into a hole you'll see in the end of shaft when you pry the roller against the spring. Pry the assembly off the front of the block. The "pin" keeps the assembly together and you may need a large pair of pliers or a vice to squeeze the spring so you can release the pin and let the assembly come apart. Reverse the steps to install the spring on the new assembly and place the assembly (with the pin in place) onto the stud--taking note that there is a small locating pin on the back side that needs to fall into place. Re-install the nut and washer (locking them with the spring compressed) and continue with the belt installation. -- Dave

And I suggest spending the extra cash for a "genuine Volvo" belt tensioner.

One of those parts that needs to be high quality, and not easily replaced.

Good luck.
