Don't ever listen to someone at Midas. I think it'* safe to say that the vast majority of us here have far more experience and knowledge on this subject than a muffler shop.

I didn't mean to beat anyone up. You're specifically told you need a special puller for those, and i was mentionining that. It was more of a chuckle if anything..

Sure. They put it on and replaced the belt after the destroyed the first pulley and completely botched the first attempt.

Killer, if we tell you something and you don't listen, and something gets botched in the process......don't post it. You're opening yourself up for abuse.

something that would worry me too is that hopefully they didnt mess up the shaft while destroying the stock pulley to get it off of it

Or the bearings and seals. That'* what I was thinking when I heard this. The pulley is the least of the concerns.
