There are four pullies for the timing belt behind the three covers. They are known to have the bearings go bad.

It's much cheaper to replace it before the timing belt breaks

so from the picture i've posted above, the arrow pointing to the cover in the left hand side, thats ONE of the 4 pullies?

Have any pullies you'd recommend? or go with a stock one ? I dont mind spending a few more bucks.

What you want to replace is the tensioners and idlers I believe. They are in between the belts. Here is a link to refer to with some pictures. New belts should be installed and check the seals also while in there.

Well, the sound appears to be coming from the left hand side "BIG Pulley" not from the main area where the 4 small idler pulley are.

Just called subaru, they want 220$ for 1x Timing belt pulley ;/ and install is 350$ woots. This really sucks... just spent 400$ on a damn o2sensor about 1-2 months ago, now this... ugh. Def not letting them do this... for 350$ i can get a nice front lip... or ero guards muaha(lol).

Do i have to remove all those sprockets/idler pulleys in order to loosen the belt and install a new Timing belt pulley? Or can i just Loosen ONE of the sprockets/idler pulleys in order to give me enough slack to remove the pulley?

Thanks in advance.

[the biggest pulley on the left]
Isnt that pulley the one i have the arrow pointing to in the first top picture? And that would be a cam gear or am i wrong? Cause thats were the noise/sound appears to come from when i shut off the car.

The large sprocket is connected to the cam alright. I'm not sure why you are hearing noise from it unless the bearing or bushing for it isn't being getting lubrication or, it is worn out.
