    Not me, no. I'd suspect unrelated problems.

    I've had this issue before- it was caused by an accident. I fixed the problem by bending the tensioner bracket away from the timing belt cover with an arbor press.

    edit: posting edits make my post look extraneous: someone before me had mentioned that their pulley and belts were rubbing on the timing belt cover- hence my response.
