Sorry I'm very bad with cars.I meant this Serpentine belt tensioner. Correct me if I'm wrong please.I think this is why my Serpentine belt keeps shredding. I've replaced the pullies.

The diagram shows the locations of the various pullies and drive belts.
Which drive belt is shredding?
Have you checked the alignment of the pullies?

That is known as the alternator drive belt.

With engine stopped, note if the crank pully, alternator and water pump pullies are lined up in a straight line.

Loosen the belt test the alternator and water pump pully for side movements. There should be none. Check for damaged pully grooves.
