1997 Porsche Boxster: I heard a loud whining sound coming..parked

This answer was rated:

I have a 1997 Porsche Boxster. Today, for the first time, I heard a loud whining sound coming from the engine. I was only two blocks from home and parked it immediately. I saw no visible leaks, though the engine smelled a little hot. Could it be a belt or pulley? Thx, John

You zoned right into the drive belt tensioner -- is this an educated guess or is that a usual culprit for that sound on a Boxster? Any recommendations, by chance, for a good Porsche mechanic in Denver? About how many hours in labor would you estimate? And price of parts estimate? Pls. estimate what you think this repair might cost?
About 2 hours labor. These guys are the best in your area.
