The deflection pulley, in all cars, is a very important component. What the deflection pulley does is to create a guide for the V-belt in the car that drives many of the different engine components. This pulley creates tension on the V-belt and reduces any play in the V-belt itself, reducing wear-and-tear and increasing its lifespan. If the bearing in the pulley starts to wear out, there will be a noticeable side-to-side movement in the deflection pulley as well as excessive noise being emitted by it.
The best way to ascertain if the deflection pulley in your car is faulty is to get your service centre to check it during the car’s annual service. They can check tension, wear-and-tear and the operation of the pulley, and advise you as to whether it needs to be replaced.
