The arrow on the tensioner is WAY out of the "Good" range. A new one is $80. Is it possible to just replace the spring? Are there any other cars to look for at the junkyard that used the same tensioner?

I was under the impression that the "good" referred to the belt not the tensioner.

Me too. Try replacing the belt.

Hmmm. My old belt was in bad shape so I did put a new one on. I tried a few different sizes to find one to work. I tried a few that were too short and too long until I found one to go on. Like I said, it reads out-of-range. I assumed it was the tensioner since I tried several belts and this seemed to be the right one. It's been working fine for a long time but I'm going to removing my AC soon and figured I'd do it at the same time.
