Thank you for the reply, I can't hear any noise from it but there is a rough spot when moving it to loosen the tension on the belt to change. I was told it might fail by a mechanic and I want to prevent catastrophic failure that woule destry the new belt I installed. I am in the midst of a UIM/LIM repair so I need to remove the tensioner anyway, I just wanted to save the part cost if I could right now.
