Rattling noise from timing belt tensioner at higher mileages on Toyota MR2

The timing belt tensioners may make a rattling noise at a higher mileages. This is due to the adjustment being at its limit. Our technicians tell us that the range of the adjuster may be lengthened by elongating the slot where the spring attaches by 2-3 mm to remedy this problem.
