Default clicking belt/pulley(s)

a couple days ago, a slight clicking starting coming from under the hood. It seems to go away when at cruising speeds, and comes and goes with RPMs. I think it is the belt or one of the pulleys. Anyone hve a guess which one to check first?

Mine's having the same problem... My dad thinks its the tensioner pulley, but I'm taking my truck to Ford next week to have it serviced and I'm going to ask them.

my dad thought is the water pump, but the guy at Autozone thinks it the idieler pulley or the tensioner. i might take the belt off and take a look at both pulleys and we shall see... Once you find out what Ford says, let me know please

10-4 will do. Would it be safe to say that if I can wiggle the pulley more so than any of the other ones that that pulley could be bad?
