Is that a groove in the belt? As in, can you catch your fingernail in it? Or is it just a different color? It’s hard to tell from the photo.

If it’s a groove I’d definitely get a replacement from FCP. They’ll take care of you I’m sure.
The ribs/grooves are full, continuous, but the change is felt on finger tip -- can pick with nail.

The FCP team says "We have checked multiple belts and they all have this mark, presumably it's a point of reference since both sides are grooved." FCP also confirmed the belt is installed correctly.

Returning to tapping noise troubles.

Your 01 may be different, but taking that bracket down to inspect won't hurt a thing. There are a few (3, I think) plastic retainers that secure rigid brake/PS lines and one that retains the wire for your rear O2 sensor. Just squeeze those with a needle-nose to allow the metal plate to drop down. Remove the 4 12mm bolts & the plate should just drop down. There are separate "hangers" (#4) helping to hold up your downpipe/catalytic converter above this plate, so no worries about the flex joint.
I am suspecting the rigid brake line knocking on bracket. One plastic retainer was out.

Cleaned off rust on the hanger and gave it a hight temp rust prevention coating. The two retainers are good, no crack or tounge damage. Inserting 2 rubber rollers as spacers around the hard brake line.

This part is subject to an update says VIDA. Looking at your subframe you dont need to drill holes to update new style bracket..lucky

Sorry part number 4 is the updated bracket. its attached to the subframe instead of that (part 4) crossmember. The crossmember then only supports one brake line.

VIDA lists this part as a recall item or similar. Not sure what the design problem is, i replaced it because one of the (item 10) rubber mounts was torn. I had to drill holes into the subframe which wasnt easy.

Its definatly more secure than it was before, if your mounts are not torn then i wouldnt worry.
