Rattling idler/tensioner since crank pulley change.

Hello All,

Since replacing my crankshaft pulley on my 20v JTD. I have noticed a rattling and rumbling sound coming from the area where my tensioner and idlers are.

Its difficult the determine which wheel is making the noise thought. We slackened off the idler, and adjusted the tensioner to get enough slack to fit my new crankshaft pulley. No other pulleys have been touched.

I notice this noise is particularly loud when the car is idle and I turn the steering wheel.

Any ideas please guys? There was no unusual sounds until we adjusted the tensioner and slackened the idler (the idler with the 3 holes in it).

Thanks in advance.
