Have you stopped in any of your local auto parts stores? They should have an OE one, sometime in stock.

the cheapest way to buy parts is on line from e-bay it take about a week for delivery but you will save o lot of money more than 50% and you can get any parts you want

the tensioner arm is probably fine, its just the pulley that needs replaced, you can get a gates brand one from rockauto.com pretty cheap. the hard part is getting to the pulley as the whole side mount of the engine has to come off.

If your still looking for one. I have a full unit for sale. Mine went on my rt. but I sold the car before I put it on. It's a used part. I paid 80 quid for it. I'm open to offers. I take it your in the uk?
