Thanks for the reply! I've had 2 alternator replacements due to front bearing failures, replaced the tensioner assembly totally & a new belt but still have belt contact just under the tensioner. Little rubber particles all over! I don't get it as the replacement parts are same as what ran fine for months!!!
