I was at my mechanic's shop last night and he noticed that my belt tensioner shock has broken loose from one of its mounting points and needs to be replaced. I ordered the replacement today but Iím wondering, what is the function of this shock? My friend said that without it, when I accelerate I may get a rumbling sound. And, in fact, Iíve had this sound for a while.
