A belt adjuster, also known as a belt tensioner, is a component in the engine of a Mercedes-Benz vehicle that is used to adjust and maintain the tension on the fan belt, also known as the drive belt. It is typically located at the front of the engine and is connected to the fan belt and the engine block.

The belt adjuster works by applying a constant force on the fan belt, which helps to keep the belt tight and running smoothly. The tensioner is usually spring-loaded and can be adjusted manually or automatically, depending on the design. In some vehicles, the belt adjuster is equipped with a hydraulic or a spring-loaded mechanism to maintain the proper tension on the belt.

In Mercedes-Benz engines, the belt adjuster is typically designed to be durable and long-lasting, able to withstand the high temperatures and pressures of the engine operation. They are also designed to be precision-machined to ensure accurate alignment of the pulleys and proper tension of the belt. The belt adjuster should be inspected regularly and replaced if it shows signs of wear or damage to ensure proper engine function and prevent potential engine damage.
