I've had a garage quote me just under 200 to replace the tensioner. Does that sound ok?

I dont know, I've always just replaced them myself, its not a huge job but access is awkward.

 

the last time I done mine I added a clutched pulley to the alternator as its supposed to help take the load off the tensioner and crank pulley and mines been very quiet since which is nearly a year ago now, I dont notice the tensioner jumping around as much now. might be something you'd want to consider as its fairly cheap and the alternator needs to come off anyhoo.

Yeah I'm roughly a 1 spanner on the Haynes difficulty rating lol. I think it might be beyond my capability

Davie has it in 1. With my tensioner, I had to remove it to discover the worn out lower bush

Do you have a link to the clutch pulley?

mine was a bit stuck, the nut came off fine but the pulley was tight on the shaft, had to pry it up which ended up bending the pulley edges quite a bit, but as it was being replaced I didnt care too much.

 

to fit the clutched pulley you need a freewheeling alternator pulley tool, its like a splined socket with hole through it for a long torx bit to hold the shaft while you tighten.

Just an update to this.

I got another a/c pump off ebay for £36. 2hrs labour at a local garage and no more rattle and I have a/c again
