Engine Squeak Noise Video (FINALLY!!) (Automatic Tensioner pos. bad.)

Looks to be the fan, now that I've been able to see it in slow motion, etc.

From the video, it does look like the fan has a slight wobble that coincides with the squeak.

I took a look at it today, tried to see if the fan was loose, I couldn't get it to wobble with my fingers, pushing or pulling on it slightly...

How can I access it to see if it needs to be tightend?

Replace?

Fix?

How do I get to it?

I do notice the belt seems to change position upon raise in RPM

Went to AutoZone, the guy pointed out that my Automatic Tensioner was vibrating back and forth, bouncing causing the belt to loose tension occasionally..

$38.00 fix of course I had to buy the tools too so it came to $50.00

Never hurts to have too many tools!

I'll show video of the problem, take pictures of a walkthrough, and share my results.

Supposedly it's really easy..
