Video I recorded. It's a little faint, turn up the volume and you can hear it.
Thanks for the reply. Was the sound heard mostly under the engine and how did you go about fixing it? New belt?I have an outback and it also made a similar sound. It ended up being the fan belt rubbing
That sounds like it should be rythmic, not random? Glad you got yours sorted.Yeah. The belt was slightly deformed from the factory. One part was slightly wider. Whenever it would pass around, it would rub on one spot and make a ticking noise. I'm not sure if it's the same thing for you but I just replaced the belt itself and now it works great.
It's got 73k. belt hasn't been touched as far as I'm aware. The previous owner kept a very extensive maintenance record on it. I'll double check tomorrow when I'm home from work but pretty sure it was never replaced.How many miles and do you have evidence of a timing belt install at 104K etc.?
