How much should it cost to diagnose and replace alternator belt tensioner on 2005 mazda 6?

The part was quoted at £125 so any fitters out there please?

How long should it take to replace and what is a reasonable cost of labour?

Local garage not mazda.

    Hi in most cases it is a minimum of one hours labour charge so you need to ask what the hourly rate is.

    I might wager that the pulleys are out of alignment. That you may determine this out with the aid of gazing belt deflection with the motor jogging. More often than not, shims can also be be put between the alternator mounting field and the alternator physique to align the add-ons. If the water pump is out of alignment (also the alternator) the pulleys will also be removed and shims positioned between them and the physique of the element to make them a little bit farther out from the component physique. Just right good fortune and Merry Christmas!
