Idler Pulley ??

So my truck started to make a squeeling noise today... I figured it was the Alternator or Idler pulley... I go to get in my truck to head to my buddy's shop to figure it out. I fire up the truck and I hear a snap so I quickly turned it off and investigated... The far left pulley ( if your facing the motor) broke.. The belt came off and the pulley is jus sloppy on there. The noise sounded like a bad/failing bearing.. I am assuming this is the idler pulley because on the diagram for the belt route it is labeled as this..

haha so my question how hard is it to change this?
How much get an idler pulley for?

If a shop did it what would I expect to pay?

Thanks

I bought an idler pulley at a junk yard for 10-15 bucks.

60k later, awesome possum.

It's not that hard. I have no idea what a shop will charge.

It's simple. A new one will run you around $30.

Was it an idler or the tensioner pulley? Its an easy swap...T-50 to take it off, get a new one and slap it in there...Only problem I ran into on replacing my lower idler next to the tensioner was breaking the darn bolt loose...

The belt Tensioner itself will go bad also.....T-50 is all it takes though to replace it
