Default Replace Serpentine Belt Tensioner Assy or Just the Pulley

My serpentine belt tensioner pulley is making a whole lot of noise squealing now, ever since I replaced the belt and did the engine mounts, a week after it started squealing.

I see they sell just the pulley, should I replace just that or the whole assembly?

Is it simply unbolt the pulley and swap?
Is it simply unbolt the whole tensioner and swap?

I would replace the entire tensioner assembly to be sure it is all working correctly. It's held on with one bolt if I remember correctly.

Replace just the idler if it's only making noise. The tensioner is probably fine.

Using the coupon at advance, I just bought the whole thing for $41
Swapped it out and no more squeak! Could they put it in a worse location? Scratch that, I know they could LOL

Thanks for the help guys.

I also readjusted my motor mounts that I just put in, I think the vibration is gone now too.
