Dusten, what is the mileage on your Ranger?. My last Ranger when I pulled the belt to replace it the tensioner fell apart & it was around 100K if I remember the mileage correctly. If the belt has not been replaced in a long while I would replace it & the tensioner together. From what I can hear in the video that is what it sounds like, also the p/s pump is whining too.
The belt is new. I replaced it just before driving across country, so it has maybe 5 or 6k on it.
I will pull the belt today and see if the noise goes away.
As for the PS pump whine, that can kiss my ass. Its a new pump that I installed when I bought the truck. Its quieter than the pump i replaced, but still pretty loud. I know that the air can be removed with a vacuum setup but I lack the setup. I've ensured it is filled and I have cycled the front end back and forth with the tires up. At this point I just accept the noise as normal.
