the dealer told me that it can be reused, but depending on the shape... but you wouldn't want to redue the job to replace the tensioner... so i went ahead and got it replaced

it will help your tensioner pulley from getting loose .... ...

sadly one time i didnt replace it.... and the belt jumped teeth and i had a lot of work to do....

i would just replace it.. i know sometimes it may be hard cause the dealership might not be open when your finishing...

I mean it really depends on a case to case basis ... but when it comes to springs its hard to tell if they are borderline bad.....

It doesn't help your tensioner from getting loose. it just provides the necessary tension on the belt before tightening the tensioner bolt. think of it as a someone helping you put tension on the bolt while you tighten it in place. "technically" you can remove the spring after tightening the bolt.
