Could be the belt itself, but I would suspect an idler pulley or one of the other pulleys. the bearings go bad. pull the belt and check them all.

Also the belt tensioner, they wear and cause misalignment of the belt.

Or maybe the cam chain is stretched out from wear and tear and its hitting the timing cover
