Hey man! I sent you a PM, but are you still looking to do that tensioner update? Just trying to figure out when I should go about acquiring the tool to hold the pulley. My other one is at home in the poconos

I hear that man! Yep, I had a MK4 GTI with a 1.8t for 4 years or so. Also did some work on mk3 VR6's and 2.0's. Like I said, I've been around the block a few times! lol

Whats wrong with it?

Well the most immediate concern is either a wheel bearing or CV joint. I have some speed based noise sounds like from front drivers side. Most noticeably around 40mph. I jacked the car up and don't have any play in either front wheels. I also noticed I have a little vibration in the brake pedal that's new and I believe to be an additional symptom of this problem.

In addition to that I believe I am hearing the beginning of the timing chain rattle so I would be interested in addressing this as well.

I think I changed every wheel bearing in my MK4 in the 4 years I had it, so they aren't uncommon. The vibrating brake pedal may be due to the wheel bearing. Is this a 12v or 24v?

Ah I see. Well the chains don't look like a hard job, but you have to pull the trans to get to the lower chains, which isn't something I'd want to do in a driveway.. LOL. The wheel bearing shouldn't be bad though. Let me know what you want to do with it!

I just don't know if its the bearing for sure or not though. No play on the wheel makes me wonder if it might be a CV joint? I can feel the vibration in the floor (mildly).

*Its not wheels/tires as noise is present on both my winter steelie set and brand new rubber stock wheel summer set.

Sometimes they can be really hard to hear. I had one going on mine that was making noise. I had no play, and even with it running on the lift and a pry bar on the a-arm I really couldn't pick it out. A month or two later it started to sound like a meat grinder, and I changed it and that was it!
