I replaced my tensioner from below. It was a tight fit getting to it but saved me time from removing anything else. I used a long 3/8 ratchet with a flex head to reach it.

This is more than likely the fix for anyone who has a squeak/squeal/chirping noise coming left of center on the motor. When listening and looking from the outside, it sounds like it's chirping from behind the left side of the radiator. I had read about the TSB for the idler pulley, so I did that one first(easiest). The noise did not go away. I then replaced the tensioner and belt and it's now quiet as ever, minus my 5" straight pipe
