Default Tensioner/Idler pulley bolt torque

Guys, I left my manual at home and I am going to be replacing the upper motor mount (TAM) so I figured I'd replace the belt and put new bearings in the tensioner and idler pulley since the idler pulley wobbles.

What are the torque specs for the bolts for the idler and tensioner pulleys?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The idler pulley bolt is 20ft-lb and the tensioner pulley bolt is 22ft-lb. These are for the bolt through the bearing that holds the pulley.

Interesting. I didn't know that the bearings on the idler and tensioner pulleys were replaceable separately. Anyone know the Saturn part numbers for these???? Or are you just planning to find a match once you disassemble it?

The bearing is a standard alternator front bearing, 6203 double sealed. You can buy it at any decent parts store.
