This has been like a comedy of errors. Installing the end cap on a ratched style tensioner... I dropped the end piece...Crawling under the car I find the end cap..the ball that goes inside the end cap..the retaining piece...another ball...and a little spring! Unbeknownst to me my girfriend, who is mechanically curious,had opened the old tensioner and all the parts had shot out. Does the end piece for the ratchet tensioner just have the ball and retaining piece or is there a little spring in the cap to keep pressure on the ball? Please help. I can not take another weekend under this car/nightmare. Thank you!!
