I apologize, I misunderstood your question on my earlier reply.
I have to replace the tensioner pulley because the other one suddenly locked up, and the belt melted half the pulley off in just the time that I could back the car up and park it.
It was strange, it just went with no growling or anything. I assume that the heat that was likely present in that bearing is what is the cause of the bound bolt.
So, I'll just need to pull the tensioner and give it a few good whacks in the center of the bolt, as Bill suggested.
