The belt tensioner comes as one unit, as far as I know you can not buy just the pulley. It's real easy to do, take the belt off, and undo the one bolt holding it in. And then replace with the new belt tensioner. You don't really need a belt diagram, just pick a pulley to start at(other than the belt tensioner of course) and follow the pulleys. Where there are grooves you know that the side of the belt with the grooves goes on it, and the flat pulleys take the other side of the belt. And then make your way back to the belt tensioner and slip the belt on it last. Before you start the car, bump it over once or twice to make sure everything is lined up, but don't let the car run. And then once everything checks out you're done.

Oops it might be. I'm not 100% sure, I'll look tomorrow morning. I wouldn't buy any Advance stuff, I just had a buddy buy a water pump for his 535i and it failed within 20 minutes of driving. It wasn't pretty and he was livid.... Motorcraft all the way!
