Changing Tensioner Assembly

What all is involved in changing it out? I shredded a belt about 2 months ago, and for the last month the tensioner has been chirping like crazy Finally bought a new assembly yesterday, but looking at it in the box, not certain how I'm going to go about changing it?

Take off belt. Remove single bolt from tensioner. Remove tensioner. Pretty sure the rest is self explanatory...

I managed to round off the bolt... where can I find the bolt or a size to replace it? If I can't find that, has anyone found a tensioner assembly that comes with a new bolt?

can't get the bolt at any parts houses, and it isn't sold individually through the dealership.

Has anybody else run across this problem and found a replacement bolt elsewhere? I really hate to spend an extra $100 for a bolt to buy the whole assembly setup through the dealership.

I'm pretty sure my new one from A&A auto parts here in north east pa came with a new bolt. And it only cost me about $60. You could just go to a fastenal and just match up a bolt. Or check the local scrap yards.
