    Hi peeps. Getting a strange rattle sound coming near the alternator belt area guessing the tensioner is worn. 2.0 2004 petrol. Any other idears also best place to get a new tensioner for a good price. Belt too. Thanks

    Hi Mate before you spend money I would check all the pulleys before buying the part.The tensioner can be lose also which can cause that noise .. I would remove the belt and check all pulleys with your hand to sense vibration and course running, check the water pump too rarely they go but the bearing can fail in it.

    With the belt off run the car for 2 minutes if the sound goes you know its one of the pulleys\tensioner.
