GTV serpentine belt tensioner fail

My other halfs 1998 2.0 gtv ate its driveshaft yesterday, ironically id just had the replacement part for it and was about to change it, anyway when the car was up in the air doing the shaft i looked in at the belt to see a nasty gouge on it, when i checked the tensioner the plastic roller part of the pulley had gone and the belt is running only on the bearing! strange thing is it was quiet and tensioned up okay! ive never seen a pulley break like that before, maybe worth a quick check occasionally! there are a few on ebay so hopefully will get one asap! The belt is wrecked!
