Same problem

I decided to replace my timing belt and found this had happened to my belt as well. I believe it was caused by several issues; broken passenger motor mount, driving fast, and worn tension-er. Anyway I replaced it some pulleys and the tension-er and car is running great.

I've never had to replace a tensioner but I have had to readjust the tension on a few Focus's.
