Default Idler/tensioner help

My uncle looked under my hood and said that the bearing in the idler seems to be going out so it was making some noise. He said I should replace both tension pulleys and the idler (attached pic) because they are usually replaced at the same time.. Since he's not too tech savvy and I'm not too auto savvy, can someone please help me find the OEM parts on the web to order?
It'd be much appreciated!

(Also, sorry if this isn't in the correct forum!)

I'm amused that the upper left corner is identified as "generator". (which havent been used in cars since the early 60's!!)

Aftermarket parts are OK for this. Despite the theory for all three to fail at about the same time, I have not found that to be true. You can replace one or all three. Just realize that since its an old car any part can fail at any time for no real reason.

Okay so would this part work? It says it's for a VR4 but does it make a difference? I have a 97 SL

Sorry you're not feeling well my friend. Get well soon.

60k is all about the timing belt and related components.

As far as I can tell you are just concerned about the pulleys for the accessory belts.

If you cant get them at your parts store, a favored dealer that gives us a discount is Cherry Hill.
