Yes, the mechanic replaced the following: timing belt, belt tensioner, idler pulley and water pump. The mechanic also replaced 2 serpentine belts outside. I checked the cover visually and noticed that one bolt was missing (supposedly for) fastening the bottom cover (right side), it is loose right now but still in place. One comment I received was to remove the cover and let the engine run to determine if still noisy (mechanic reason was - it is noisy because of the timing belt rubbing the cover). I'm not sure if this is true and if it is true then the cover and the belt will be damaged eventually. I was given 6 mos. Or 60,000 miles warranty on their work and they recommended to replace the cover to fix the noise problem. Shall I replace the cover or not? Finally got the cost of the bottom cover, $71.50 (special order) + $15 for gaskets. Pls. Advise what to do. Thank you for your help.
