Hello,

The tweeting is more than likely 1 of 2 pulley's. There is an Idler Pulley and a Tensioner Pully. To figure out which one it is. With the vehicle off find the 2 pulleys, spray the center bolt on One of them with WD40 or Similar. Start the vehicle if the tweet goes away then replace that pulley. If is didn't go away turn vehicle off and spray the other pully the same way and restart. If tweet is gone then replace that pulley.

Ok the I guess Dent ( ). Depending where exactly the dent is. If it is a good size dent and is on the hood (flat surface) you can probably just take a plunger and pull it out. If it is on the corner or curved area then that is a little harder to do and may require drilling a couple holes to pull the dent out.
