There should be a decal inside rear door that shows you what to look for on drive bent tensioner jca57jd. There should be a "pointer" on tensioner, hard to describe on forum, and not something easy to see unless you know what you're looking for, but that pointer should be between the 3 o'clock and 2 o'clock position. If it's in the 1 o'clock to straight up 12 o'clock position, drive belt is too loose. I've also seen the guts of that pointer plate wear our, pointer is all over the place, and makes a rattling sound. I can't say that's the ticking noise you're hearing, but does sound like your drive belt is either too loose or needs replacement.
