If you look in the phone book, you might find an Autozone, NAPA or other
parts place near by. That would be my first bet. Or the dealer. If you can
get seperate bearings, this would be where to look.
There used to be a company called Bearings Incorporated that could supply just
any bearing for a situation such as this. You needed the bearing manufacturers
number that is usually stamped onto the bearing itself. Bearings Inc. had
all around the country, but the one that was near me is gone. I believe they
bought by another company. Do a Google search and see what you can find. The
and parts stores will only have listings for the assembly.
Actually, the auto parts store should have a book with bearing interchanges
that list number stamped on the bearing and the part number for the brand
that the company carries.
My father owned a automotive engine rebuilding company. It is easy to look
them up. And if the company doesn't have one in stock, they can order one
I've replaced many bearings when the entire assembly was unavailable and had
ordered. For example, a 99 Dodge Durango AC compressor pulley. It was umobtanium
the local parts stores and was SO at the dealer for ~$85. Got the bearing from
Bearings Inc. for ~$11.
The idler and tensioner pulleys are probably ~$20 each and readily available.
personally wouldn't bother replacing the bearings, but...
On Rockauto.com, one can purchase the entire idler assembly for under
$10, plus, it is the same part number for the replacement pulley for
the tensioner! Thanks again, especially Tom, for your help!
