Still willing to bed it's the tensioner... You'll need to get those covers off if you're going to tear the block apart so you mine's well just rip it off somehow before you go through all the work.

My guess is that the tensioner is the culprit. No need to remove the engine to do that. Get the goddamn cover off it and check already !!

Two 10mm to remove the coolant reservoir, three more to take off the left cover. If it was my engine, I'd want to know

Just remove the left cover (drivers left) and you can check the tension (you'll have to get the reservoir off first) remove the right cover if you want to see if it's in time (use a 22mm to turn the crank pulley bolt to line up the marks. No need to remove the accessory belts or center cover until you need to get in there to replace things.

UPDATE::::::: THE SOUND IN THE video is now solved :-)

i took apart my timing covers found out my belt was kinda loose that would be becuase of bad belt tenasioner and also while i was there i changed all idlers and water pump every thing was old car only has 64k miles so again it was a loose timing belt

i bought a timing belt kit with water pump for 236 on ebay :-)

SUBI NOW PUUUUURRRRSSSS

My god the suspense was killing me

Seriously glad to hear it is all fixed. We can all feel like genius's now, since we thought we knew what the problem was and were right You should feel very fortunate to have caught it before it became a much more expensive valve job. Don't expect to get as many miles out of those E-bay parts though. I've seen those belts at 50K miles and they don't hold up like the OEMs. Who did the work for you ?

Hey cullen,
I am having a similar issue, you can read my thread "02 wrx no mods all stock- making funny noise ".... I have a rattle/knocking (maybe) noise coming from lh side of motor. The sound appears at 3k rpms, and Does not get louder with rpms. I know I have a new timing belt, but not sure about the tensioner. Could you give me your input?

Thank you guys for all your advice and help! this is the best subbie forum on the net!!!!

well if u want to check the tension remove the left *passenger side* timing belt coming to see if the belts loose if it is loose most likely u have a bad belt tensioner if it is bad its best to change all idlers too with the tensioner so that way everything is new
