Tensioner snapped

On my 02 wrx, I was going to change the belts. I got the first one off easy, the second one thats around the the A/C unit and idler pulley did not. The tensioner thats on the pulley snapped in half aound the threads.. The good part is that the pulley is stuck in place (The reason why it snapped), the bad part is I have to change the belts and I dont want to take everything off to get to the belt when I cant tighten the belt back up. My problem, looked on ebay, I dont see any tensioners that look like the one I have, or ANY idler pulley tensioners at all...

That pulley will cost you $35 from a dealer, and they should have them in stock since they fail often. Sounds more like you need the bracket (maybe) which they should also have. It'll be a cheap fix
