I too just did my idler and tensioner recently. Just removed the fan and airbox and moved the shroud to the driver side after removing the small expansion tank hose. My ac tensioner needs to be replaced but I will wait for spring time. With new rollers, my motor no longer dips below the idle mark during shifts. Agrred with Nine6, ac tensioner should be easy from underneath the car. Best part about that DIY is that I discovered that one of the mounting bolts for my alternator had almost completely backed out. I would not have noticed this if I did not have the belts off with a clear view of that area.
