Please help!!!!!!!!!!

Hey ppl, i have a 2000 bmw 540i automatic. i was driving it the other day, and i noticed it was overheating. i popped the hood and the main belt on the fan was off. i took off the radiator housing and then the fan and noticed that one of the pulleys was broken off. it is the one i think its called the tensioner. its the lower one of the 2 small pulleys there. is it hard to change? do i need the whole new assembly or just the pulley?? thanks for any input.
here is the assembly and then just the pulley which one???

Click here, this one? RealOEM.com BMW E39 540i Belt Drive Water Pump/Alternator

Here is the tensioner: INA Adjusting Pulley Assembly with Tensioner, Pulleys, and Base Plate - Water Pump/Alternator Belt Part #11 28 7 515 865

If just the pulley broke off you should be able to replace the pulley by removing the bolt. If the problem is the tensioner itself, then you need the part I posted above.

Keep in mind that the cooling fans (on M62 engines) have developed a reputation for failing (usually as a result of the water pump bearing developing a bit of play). I've installed one of these to address the issue of the flimsy radiator necks and end tank seals as well as the problem with the fans.
