I have a 2001 Outback LL Bean H-6 which I just bought used at 81,000 miles. A few days after purchase the cam chain tensioner WAS making the noise. Thankfully, the dealer did repair it under my 1 month, 1 thousand mile warrantee all at no charge! At least a 1 1/2 day job the dealer tells me. There was a long parts list involved though I don't know what it would cost. I told them to replace the water pump as preventive maintenance as long as all was apart since I figured it would be small potato's labor wise to do so. Well, they didn't replace it. I was told there was much more involved for the water pump. Much more engine disasembly involved if not engine removial! Tell me it isn't so. I pray I don't EVER have to replace the water pump.
