is there any use trying to put this tensioner back on?

the truck has 62,000 miles, I put a new belt on it a week ago, but it squeaks really loud, so I figured I neede to tighten it. Well the whole tensioner came out, I did notice iron filings as i was bolting it. What does the tensioner replacememtn consist of?

Exclamation

PLEASE use your reply button to reply to posts rather than creating new ones.

Again, the tensioner should not come apart in pieces like that as I recall. Any GM dealer should be able to get you a new one in short order. As I recall it's the tensioner and the pulley assembly. Their parts microfilm will show the picture and the part number and what comes with what. I suggest you hit a GM parts counter for it.

You're likely to get worn out junk like you have and be back to square one. Worth the money on a GM part. I do not think they are that expensive.

Have you called various dealers to find out? Get the GM # from the dealership and then you can order it wholesale from www.gmpartsdirect.com

Again, check the autolibrary link I list in my signature file (what follows every post I make) and the instructions are likely contained there .
