belt tensioner question

95 D90 with 103,000miles. While replacing the belts I noticed both belt tensioner bearings were a little noisy. Nothing I noticed while driving or listening to the engine with the hood open. I noticed this when removed both pieces and spun the pulley next to my ear.

Should I replace these? Are these prone to go bad?

they certainly can if they were over-tightened previously.

they are expensive if you buy the entire unit from AB RN etc. I was able to get the bearing from RDS it was cheap and helped quieten mine down. The belt tensioner is different from the AC tensioner, it may only be the orientation of the pulley.

You can get the bearing from your local NAPA, part # 6203-2RSJ, costs about $12
