Question Asked: Metallic clicking noise when car is idling.

At first i thought the noise was coming from the heat shield underneath until I got under and followed the noise up to my engine. upon further review I isolated the source to be my Belt tensioner Pulley. The arm assembly was vibrating up and down and hitting another piece of metal. I put a long screwdriver in between the movement and noise stopped. Do I need to replace or can this be corrected? In addition the noise gets worse if I turn on the A/C.
