Is this the problem with it rattling, specialy on start up?

If so it's usually the tensioner that's usually at fault. Common problem

Its more like Droning noise only when idling once you raise the revs to 950rpm-1000rpm the noise disappears......?

So when its just running at idle i get a droning noise and the revs dont sit steady 735rpm-765rpm etc. needle bounces up and down slighty when idling - goes in tune with the droning noise......?

Any help much appreciated.....

I would still put my money on the tensioner. They're prone to falling apart

If ford replace the wrong part then they would have to fork out for the correct one themselves. You may even find that there saying the same thing but it's just the receptionist on the phone that's mixed up
