I don't believe 04/05 XT's are a problem at all. XT's are not really susceptible to HG failures. They have a semi-closed deck engine. NA engines prior to 2004 are susceptible to HG issues.

Did they replace the idler and tensioner when they did the TB?

In general I am leary of independent shops doing this work unless they are known to be good Subaru Specialists.

Also I am a bit paranoid when mega parts are replaced and the vehicle is then up for sale. (Did the repairs not go well?)

Welcome to the board.
