So i turn it off grab my trust socket set walk out toss the socket on it and pop.... the bolt snaps between the brace and the part it threads through... So i gotta order a new 1 go through mazda? or just go to the local hardware?

Thats the first part now i got the head of the bolt and maybe half an inch of the bolt the rest is still in the tensioner part how should i get it out? its got a lil rust on the bolt itself so i figure the threads are basiclly welded togather aluminum and metal.... YAAYYY Maybe just break away and vice grips?

happened to me too, but there was enough to grab onto with pliars and get the section in the tensioner out. Just took it to a hardware store and found the longest bolt that would go in it.

if you take the tensioner nut off, the thing should come out the back, then you can get it apart on the bench, or floor
