    Aux belt tensioner - new/old style interchangeable?

    Are the aux/serpentine belt tensioners interchangeable between old and new styles? Mine's an early Ph2 with the type that has a 14mm bolt on the pulley, but I've just been supplied the newer tensioner that uses a torx head to release the tension. Can I use this?

    Did you buy it from a dealer?

    Yep, a well known one.

    Looks like it should fit though, from what I've read.

    They've obviously modified it then! The part you have will be correct to your VIN because the parts guys always ask for your VRN.

    I like it when Volvo modifies parts for the better.

    Just to confirm, yes they are interchangeable. I managed to confirm this after a lengthy Google session and have since had the part fitted out without issue, so all good.
