WILL THE FAULTY INSTALLATION OF A TIMING BELT POSSIBLY MAKE CAM BEARING GO BAD?

Had s60 2004 volvo timing belt/water pump replaced. Check engine light comes on after one week for the 02 sensor but a loud high pitched(sounds like an idler belt) noise is previlent when car gets warmed up. Noise lessens after 2000 RPMS. Shop owner is saying the cam bearing could be bad. Could the timing belt change have anything to do with this?

No, nothing to do with the repair.

Why do you think they did something wrong? Why did you replace the timing belt?

Sorry, it was 106,500 miles. I was told this is a routine time to replace belt. I was wondering if there were specifics for a volvo when you replace this. This was not done at a Volvo dealer repair shop.
PS: Know nothing about cars and engines. I was having no problem with car until I had the timing belt replaced and now all of a sudden, I seem to have Cam bearing issues(they think) plus check engine light for the sensor.
Thanks for taking the time to reply!
