could be the alternator, water pump
take the belt and spin all the pulleys and listen for noise and make sure they turn smoothly
another trick is to take a can of wd40 or equivalent and spray the bearings 1 at a time till the noise goes away or quiets down

go to www.gates.com on the lower right hand side under popular topics, click on timing belts, then on the left hand side click Parts Locator and Interchange, enter your cars info and the first page that comes up will show you a camera icon for a pic of how your belt is routed. The tensioner pulley is the one mounted on a silver arm, usually at the top. Hope this helps let me know.

Its on the lower part of the engine....It was much easier for me to jack the van up and take the the front passenger side tire off..... and I used a 13mm wrench to grab the bolt on the tensioner to push up and then had my daughter put the belt on while I was pushing the tensioner...........of course you can buy a tensioner wrench at a local part store, but I just like to do it the "old shade tree mechanic way!!!"

Disengage the negative battery cable in all models.
Detach the passenger inner splash-shield and wheel cover, the accessory drive and timing belts, the tensioner and the crankshaft pulley.
Remove the spark plugs, catalytic converter and idler pulley in 2000 and older Ford Focuses. These models also require the crankshaft be turned to "Top Dead Center" (TOC) and a crankshaft timing peg be inserted. Turn the shaft to the right against the timing peg.
Undo the retaining fasteners and lift the timing belt cover off the engine. Align the crank and camshaft timing marks. Older models call for undoing the water pump pulley and valve cover before locking the camshaft in place.
Release the tensioner's bolt. Turn the arm to the right 14 degrees and place a 1/8 inch drill bit in the opening. This secures the belt tensioner in place.
Take the timing belt off.
Replace the timing belt counterclockwise motion beginning at the crankshaft.
Unlock the tensioner. Recheck the timing marks by turning the crankshaft two rotations to the right.
Tauten the tensioner's pulley bolt to 15 to 22 foot pounds (20 to 30 Nm) in 2003 and younger models and to 17 to 20 foot pounds (22 to 28 Nm) in older Focuses. Remove the crankshaft timing peg. Reconnect the crankshaft pulley and secure to 81 to 96 foot pounds (110 to 130 Nm) and 81 to 89 foot pounds (110 to 120 Nm) respectively.
Replace the splash shield, front wheel, timing belt cover, accessory drive belt and tensioner and any other items that were disconnected.
Hook up the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check that the timing belt is functioning properly
