Belt Tensioner Bolt Question

My tensioner bolt on the upper belt has stripped at the top end of the bolt that holds the idler pulley. I cannot turn the bolt at all. The pulley is stuck in a position that is too high for the belt. I need to cut the bolt. Has anyone experienced this before?

Does anyone know if I can I buy only the bolt and the part at the top of the tensioner bolt that holds the pulley?

Re: Belt Tensioner Bolt Question

I've recently encountered a snapped tensioner bolt in a 1996 Ford Probe I4 2.0L - I un-threaded both halves and plan on finding a generic steel bolt with same thread pattern to replace it. Don't know if that helps, but you could always cut it and replace it.
