If a good old search on the interwebs doesn't inspire confidence, then give the dealer (parts department) a call. They'll need a VIN number to pull the relevant information, get the price on the call.
Then check else where.

I suggest this option, as Mazda has done minor part changes between models.
My friend has a 2017 CX3 (I have a 2016), how ever we have seen that there are part revisions done, albeit minor.

Regards,

VIN is something like a barcode of each individual vehicle and vin history shows your fate. There are thousands of sites offering verification services. On Vingurus , I always know which part number I need. My car often breaks down.

This is apparently the bolt tensioner for a 2016 or 2017 CX-3


In fact it's used for a whole range of years of CX-3, along with many other Mazda models. Whoever you are ordering from should confim this is the correct part if you quote the Mazda part number PE03-15-980C

Could i ask which belt this tensioner is for as i was under the impression the engines are all cam chain?

It is either for the serpentine belt - also know as alternator belt - and / or the water pump belt. See the diagram on the web page below
.

It has nothing to do with a cam belt which, as your impression is correct, isn't on the CX-3 engine as it uses a cam chain instead
