also, IIRC, the bolt holding the tensioner pulley on is reverse-threaded.

Thanks again guys, had it checked out a few times today by different people and well, it was the belt tensioner, it failing caused the bearing to go inside the pulley so i had an entire new belt tensioner put in. Good as new!

It'* good you replaced it before it failed. Mine seized up on the highway in a spectacular cloud of molten serpentine belt, which ripped through part of my power steering pump'* reservoir.

Tow + tensioner + PS pump + AC compressor (which was bad anyway) = $$$.
