Default 03 wrx - a/c belt tensioner won't tighten

This is making me feel dumb, but for some reason I can't get my a/c belt tensioner to tighten. No matter which way I turn the big bolt it's just as loose and I can move the pulley all the way up and down. The plastic piece at the bottom isn't broken. I also noticed my tensioner has these two nuts that I haven't seen on anybody else's. When I try to turn the bottom one it just hits the pulley.



For now I've just pushed the big bolt down and tightened the lock nut. It works but the belt is a little loose and I can still wiggle the bolt around by hand.

So what am I missing here?
