Tensioner pulley

...keeps the serpentine belt tight.
Can the bearing be replaced, or is it one of those that is molded into the wheel?

Mine was squeaking a bit tonight, so I'm thinking I should replace it before it becomes an issue on the road!

Just replace the entire pulley. IIRC they are not very expensive at all. I am unsure if you are even able to get the bearing out. It would be too much work for the couple dollars saved if it is even possible.

Don't even bother with the pulley. Replace the entire tensioner. The spring usually wears out long before the pulley bearing, so if the bearing is shot, the spring is probably up way past its bedtime.

fire it up and while it "Squeaking" drip a few drops of plain water on your belt....if it quiets it, it's the belt, not the pully....

they seem to last about 75,000 miles.....and NAPA has good quality replacements....

I have gently pried the seals out of the bearings, and re-greased them to get by for a while, but I do NOT recommend it....

The bearing is $10 at napa and can easily be pressed out, the pulley with bearing is like $30, and can be easily changed, I replace when necessary but if I catch it before it goes I just replace the bearing
