Mine acted up for a couple weeks and was loud and annoying, but then suddenly it stopped. Ford's are known to have this issue, and several members recommend the Gatorback belt for replacement and the tensioner. Also, I do not know what the owner's manual says, but I do know that people like changing the belt between 30-40,000 miles. Mine has 50,000 and is fine.
