Mine has been vibrating between the alternator and crank pulleys at certain engine speed/load conditions which sounds like a rattle. (at least that's what dealership service tells me) It ranges in pitch from low note to something akin to marbles in a can depending on conditions.

No deflection, none.
If I leave it this way the alternator bearings will fail prematurely so I'm looking for a high quality replacement that will do it's job without the vibrations and at the proper tension.
Will weld for beer.
