Unless the bearings are **** in your idler pulley then it's your tensioner. Pop the belt off and spin the idler. Either that or just see how tight the belt is, if it's semi-loose then it's your tensioner.

On a side note, if you're replacing both anyway who cares which one it is!! :p

Oh yeah, while you're in there you should snap some pics of the tensioner and post them up here. I have a sneaking suspicion that mine was replaced at one point with an incorrect unit.
