Metal sound from belt

Metal sound from belt

Postby thelackof [OP] » July 4th 2017, 9:44pm

In idle i could hear from under the hood like metal sliding against metal.
Opened the hood and it seems to be coming from the belt. Cant see other belts and im not very vehicle savy. Sort of in the middle but to the right.

Any idea?

Idler or tensioner pulley losing a bearing? That's the first thing I'd look at. With the engine cold, take the belt off and spin the pulleys one at a time until you find the culprit.
