UGH Tensioner Bolt snapped!

I was working on my car to change the belts, since it has 75k on the odo, first time I ever had my belt changed. I was turning idler pulley tensioner bolt, and the whole nut snapped off, I was like ugh, now I have to replace it. Had anyone had any issues with it, as far as replacing the whole new Idler pulley with the bracket?

That same thing happened to me on my old 4th gen and I was pissed. You can get an iddler pulley kit straight from a Nissan dealer with the pulley and bolt assembly, that's your best bet.

Happened to me on my old 5.5 gen. 4th gen tensioner pulleys use the same bolt. You can get one at a junkyard for next to nothing and about 10 minutes worth of work (tops).
