For the cross linking record, dcotti wrote up his hindsight recommendations over here for what he'd do differently the next time he replaces his 2003 tensioners and belts.
- Belts / Tensioner s/ Idler Pulley Replacement

Notice that he had two mechanical tensioners, one of which was the TORX and the other the HEX pry point.

It seems that only the 2003 is so afflicted with the torx pry point.

Also dcotti described what he'd remove next time he contemplates the same job.
