I am having a similar issue with my 94 eclipse gs without a turbo, unless I'm mistaken a person should be able to remove the bracket for the tensioner along with the idler wheel. Remove the idler wheel, have the bearing pressed out of the idler wheel center and replace just the bearing, but you better know how to press in the new bearing or know someone that has a bearing press. Then just re-install the idler wheel on the bracket, install bracket back on engine and set the tension on the belt.
Hopefully this will help someone out in fixing their problem, Good luck
