Needs to be replaced. You can go pikey style and replace just the tensioner but best thing to do is get a full timing belt kit

If you go pikey style I'd be changing the belt as well. I'd never re-fit an old timing belt.

The whole kit can be had for about 45.. Considering the tensioner by its self will cost not much less than that and theres only about an extra 15 minutes of labour involved in replace the belt + rollers too
and combined with the fact that a broken cambelt = a fucked engine you'd be a complete and utter cock master not to get the whole lot done.

Does that include the rollers? You MUST replace the rollers, they are shitty plastic things..
