Default 96 Bonneville tensioner

Greetings from Ohio, it has been a while since I have hade to use this site, But every problem that I have had, Someone on here has helped me out. And now a new problem.....
The belt tensioner sounds to be worn out. It makes a squeeling noise.
My question is, I see hoses coming off of it, but I dont think it has a super charger.... Hoses are to cool the super charger... You would be able to see that...... RIGHT?????
Do I have to replace that whole unit, or can I just get the pulley and unbolt the old pulley and install the new one......
And is there a section somewhere on here to walk me through doing this.
Thanks alot,
Ray in Ohio

You can replace just the pulley. No need to pull the tensioner unless it'* not working right.
