No need. If my test doesnt provide any results, next would be remove idler/tensioner pulley. Spin it with your finger in the middle. If it sings and freewheels for a long time, its likely bad. A good bearing wont make a "mmmmmmmmmm" noise at all, and will have a little bit of rolling resistance. It should spin, but not for a super long time. Its difficult to say when its intermittent.
