If its squeeking check your belt. Tension/belt grip spray. If it whines or whirrs its probably the idler pulleys. Not too expensive, change them yourself. Get the aftermarket steel ones. the stock ones are plastic crap.

I think you are stuck with the plastic ones ( they outlast the bearing anyway). I will give you a tip, the extra idler in the VCT is the same as the normal idler on the tensioner. Don't get talked into buying the one spares will want to sell you (even if they can find it in the parts list) as it is twice the price.

In your case 2 idlers and one tensioner pulley.

There are two on the tensioner, one ribbed and one flat.
