I think you priced the whole tensioner, not just a $25 idler pulley. This is why I'm trying to explain the difference between an idler and a tensioner.

The 'bad' pulley reacted the same in the NEW location?

I did that and it sounds like it'* comming from the alternator. Sucks to be me Murdock.

Frank, be careful when pricing the pulleys. That $98 was probably for the complete tensioner arm and pulley assembly, not just the pulley. Ask them for the tensioner pulley only next time and see what they say.

I honestly am not very familiar wuth the SC pulley setup, but while trying to purchase the pulley only for my car, I was told by the dealership that it did not come as a pulley only and that I needed to buy the whole tensioner assembly for $139+. With more investigation, I purchased the pulley only at another dealer for $34 (metal replacement pulley). I understand that many have found them at parts houses for less $.

EDIT: Obviously too slow to post again, lol.

IF it'* the alternator.. it'* probably the rear bearing on them.. use the same method to listen to the rear bearing on the alternator.. that or lube the snot out of the rear bearing.. if it quiets down.. thats your cause.. and either get a rebuilt kit or get a rebuilt alternator.

EDIT: Might as well spray some lube on the front bearing if you can reach it just to ensure.. put a screwdriver to the top of the alternator and your ear to the other end.. you should be able to hear and feel the vibration of the grindy sound IF it'* the alternator.

Lash, when I phoned for a price, I asked for the pulley that was 3" and was the one that went around the alternater power steering pump, and I had the plastic one and wated the metal one. I can't believe that it'* that much either.

I would assume that you would have to take apart the alternator in order to "lube the snot out of the rear bearing" and I'm not that versed in the disassembly of an alternator. As for the rebuilt, I think I'm going to leave that to a tech meet we have on of these years.

Dood you're gettin ripped.. like Drunken Monkey sleeping two-four said <-- Bill (willwren) I think they priced out for the whole thing.. mine was bout that price for ALL the pullies

BUT back to the alternator.. you'll be able to see the rear bearings of the alternator from the back side of tha alternator.. just lube it good.. and see if it quiets down.. then with car off.. see if you can squeeze the straw between the fins to where the armature shaft sticks out in the front and give it a quick shot or three. ( for the front.. make sure your car isn't running )

That pulley should be $25-$35 US, which works out to $80 canadian, right?

Dood, they quoted the wrong part.

No Will, the supposed bad pulley didn't react the same in the new location....that'* why it leads me to believe it'* not the pulley.
