    The timing belt tensioner has to be replaced, and then the water pump and idler pulleys are also a good idea too.

    Replace both tensioners AND the water pump as well.It's also a good time to change all external belts as well,if you havent done it in a while. At this point they are loosened up or off anyhow, so No problem. Just did this 10k miles ago on my '02 S60. Hope this helps.-Steve
