Broke tensioner

I just pulled into my driveway and the battery light came on, brakes quit working as good, and no steering, so i popped the hood, and noticed my belt was loose, I got a light and looked to see what the problem was and the smooth pulley on the tensioner had busted the bearing and was bent almost sideways, I'm hoping its just the bearing and not the whole tensioner..
Has anybody else ever had this happen?

A small reinstalation tip. Be sure the tensioner is pre-loaded. By that I mean the little metal tab is locked into the grove. This will make it easier to slip the belt back on.
If it should not be ingaged put it in a vise and put it under tension until the tab locks in.

Glad you got it worked out.

On a side note - is that a Westin Bull Bar?

Looks sweet!
