Leaking hydraulic belt tensioner - any other issues I should check for?

Hello everyone.

I was poking around my wife's CX-3's engine bay today and noticed that the hydraulic belt tensioner is leaking. It appears this may be a somewhat common problem? Has anyone else experienced this? Not getting any meaningful results on the search here but I am getting hits from Mazda 3s with the same 2.0L engine on other forums.

The car's @ 50K miles and had absolutely no problems thus far... it's a rock solid little machine.

Any other common problems that I should check for? Car's coming up on 60K miles & after that it's all on me...


Also, would anyone happen to have a link to the factory service manual? Feel free to PM me if so, please... I'm not even sure it's possible to buy such things anymore.

I know that used to be a problem with previous Subaru Foresters and happened to me once. The result was a terrible clatter that would come from the engine when first started up. Luckily it was covered by warranty.

It's far from that point but the car's under warranty so will definitely be taking care of it... Anything else to look out for? These forums don't seem terribly active. Any other places CX-3 owners frequent? Reddit is full of teenage morons.
