Ill tell ya what goes wrong. Its the fact that MB uses rubber as the elastic element in the tensioner. There is rubber in between two circular pieces of metal which is normally under tension (twisting). After a lot of time and heat the rubber looses its strength and takes on a new "set". And then its junk.
