My 2004 Honda Pilot EX has 74,000 miles. I was told that my drive belt tensioner needed replacement b/c it vibrates when spinning therefore creating a high pitch sound. Should I have mechanic replace the tensioner and go ahead and replace timing belt water pump or should I have mechanic change the tensioner now and then change timing belt water pump at the recommended 105,000 miles?

The owner's manual says to replace the timing belt at 7 years, so just by time alone you are due for the change.
