Strange rattling sound, dissapears when I apply slight pressure

 

 

Not sure why, but the printer has started making a rattling sound while printing. The sound stops when I apply the slightest pressure to the X axis pulley. Are there any parts that I can adjust that might alleviate this issue?

RE: check

Check to see if you bearings are too loose or too too tight. Also, check to see if any screws are loose.

Topic starter answered:
adjust the bearings?

Screws have been tightened, tightened the x axis belt. Ran the belt tension test, came back as 254, which should be within acceptable limits. As far as the bearings go, how would I adjust them? I would think just replacing them would be the only solution.
