Welcome along!

?2: You can look up the maintenance schedule on your account, and it's also posted here. Timing belt is done at 105,000 miles, and folks recommend doing the water pump, tensioner, and couple other small things while you're already in there. Do a search for "tensioner" and you'll come up with a bunch of threads that offer some great suggestions.

?4: Wheel bearing on the rear axle is a common failure so I wouldn't be surprised to hear that your noise comes from that. Search for that one and, again, you'll find some great advice for that issue.

As far as common maintenance that folks do beyond the schedule, or for some advice concerning the schedules themselves, there are usually threads coming up at least once a month over in the Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty area, so those aren't too tough to find. (If you don't find anything be sure to go to Display Options at the bottom of the page and broaden the time period displayed.) For the most-oft encountered problems, take a peek at this thread, which has links to some of the questions we encounter a bunch around here.
