Belt tension bar and assembly

Im having a problem keeping a new belt tight. I replaced one of the belts after replacing the fan clutch yesterday and today the belt was loose and making noises. I know I tightened it correctly yesterday so I may have a tension bar problem. My question is, are there any troubleshooting tips out there and if it is a tension bar problem do I have to replace the entire assembly or can I just replace the tensioning bar? My MB is a 1991 300TE. The is a salvage yard near by with a few newer models that still have some engine parts available in case there is a part I can use from them. They look to be in the mid 90's and they are sedans like the 420sl or maybe a 300??

Thanks and hope to hear some good news!
