    Water pump tensioner bearing noise

    I have a 02 WRX, it is making bearing noise which is coming from the front of the engine. Does anyone know what it might be? Also, is there a diagram showing the front end bearings on a WRX I can find somewhere on the web?

    Thanks!

    i just had to replace my alternator belt tensioner... remove it and spin it, if its not that one... try another untill you figure it out. thats what i did, but fortunatly it was my first guess!

    Thanks Drift! I will surely start off with that and hopefully that is the problem...
    Do you remember how much the alternator belt tensioner cost you?

    noise still there

    Ok, I removed both the alternator belt, and the other belt (a/c compressor?) and started the engine, the noise is still there and seems to be coming from the main engine crank which runs these belts. Does anyone know if there a bearing that goes there which could be the issue?
