It's for your serpentine belt. It keep tension on the belt so the belt does not make noise. Look at the front of the engine where the belt is. It should be on the passenger side of the engine about half way down. What I would do it go buy one then you know what it looks like. You will have to pry it back to get the belt off. Then the bolt will be in the middle. Replace the tensionar and put the belt back on.
