2013 Versa Idler pulley replacement.

Has anyone replaced the idler pulley adjuster bolt and drive idler stud bolt?

I was working on my wife's 13' Versa and did not notice that i had to loosen the bolt at the pulley, and decided that to just go to town on the adjuster bolt. Well as you can imagine i broke it right off (At the idler pulley stud bolt with the pass thru). Tmw i'm going to take her car all back apart and replace the bolt i broke, as well as the entire idler pulley drive bolt (Incase it got damaged when i broke the bolt for $10 bucks it's easy insurance).

I was wondering if anyone had any tips and tricks. As of now the pulley is still holding tension since it's the back side up against the block that is still connected and threaded thru the idler pulley bolt. is it really just as simple as take the (whatever size the nut is on the pulley bolt) remove it let the belt lose tension and just pull it out? while making sure to note the orientation of the dust caps? i've never worked on a vehicle that had one of these so i want to make sure i have all my "ducks in a row" before i really get in it.

This is the best I could come up with. The shop manuals are no longer on the internet, and Youtube did not have any videos of your particular year and model.
