WHAT! You had the Timing belt Tensioner replaced but not the Belt itself?! Or am I wrong and have misread your description?

If that is the senario then you may end up having much more damage done when the timing belt snaps..

If the timing belt (cambelt) tension is released in anyway.. Then the Belt MUST be replaced.. You must not re-tension it and then expect the belt to last..
