noise

I had a terrible noise coming from the front of the engine in my 97 C230. Narrowed it down to the belt tensioner and pulley assembly. Replaced the tensioner, pulley and shock. the noise was gone and everything was great for 500 miles. Now at idle the tensioner is vibrating and the noise is back. If I increase the rpms the belt smooths out and no noise. Any ideas?
