Assuming you know (and knew) the proper way to adjust belt tension, then the tensioner is likely all that has failed. Tension is provided by torsion on a molded rubber bushing, and the bushing separates with deterioration from age. If you ever adjusted the tension without loosening the locking bolt, then you probably also broke the adjuster - ordered separately.
