I recently got my timing belt replaced on my 04 wrx along with the water pump and the tensioner(dealer said to to this).. I wanted to pull off the cover to see how it looked in there and when my car was running i noticed that my timing belt moves in and out a little bit. It will move in towards the motor and then out towards the end of the cams (the lip from the bottom cam/pulley or whatever it is, on the drivers side bottom seems to be holding it on) Is this something i should be worried about or is a little back and forth movement normal? I would say its moving in and out about 1/8 of an inch.
