Grinding and vibrating noise...

Hello, I have a 2005 Honda Element Lx with 98K miles...I am at a loss here.
For a pretty long time I have heard a grinding, rattling noise coming from under the hood. I have read some topics on here and thought it was the belt tensioner pulley. I just had the pulley replaced, but not the assembly. The guy who replaced it couldnt really figure out what the noise was. He said it could be anything from something loose to the bearing in the water pump going bad. After I had the pulley replaced, I thook it to a garage and they looked at it and said the entire Belt tensioner assembly needed fixed. I called the guy who replaced the pulley said he didnt think it was the pulley assembly. I am at a loss, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sadly without seeing it it would be hard to diagnose but it could be the assembly or the bearing in the AC unit. Does it happen all the time or just once in a while.
pretty much all the time...It stops then starts stops for a sec then starts again
