osmonxp Posted October 19, 2017 Share Posted October 19, 2017 I replaced the timing belt on my 2012 Subaru Legacy 2.5i, all pulleys were replaced as well the only thing that was not replaced was the water pump because it looked like it was recently replaced. Everything went as plan and the installation was easier than expected. I drove the car today (40+ miles) when suddenly a grinding noise caught my attention. I managed to get home and quickly checked the timing belt but everything appears to be fine which makes me wonder, is it possible to apply way too much tension to the timing belt? I really don’t have another explanation for that noise. Does anybody know what the symptoms are of an over tensioned timing belt? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
