Default Belt tensioner question

I have a noisy pulley on the belt tensioner (87). Looks like one 15mm bolt holds the spring assembly to the bracket. Any surprises if I remove this bolt? Springs "flying" or other issues. It looks too easy............and most things I try to fix are not! :D

Nope...comes right off. Once you get the pully off, take the three nuts and bolts off that hold the two halfs togther. Then tap a screwdriver between the halfs to seperate. Then you can take the bearing out and go to your local bearing distributor and get a replacment. Shouldn't be any more then a few bucks.
