Hi, Can anyone let me know the size of the standard Idler pulley bearing please... this is the fixed pulley (flat outer) just above the tensioner on a standard 96-04 Gt.

I have a whine, and whilst I suspect aircon Comp. this pulley has a lil' extra play in it anyway, so would like to just replace the bearing in the pulley rather than complete pulley.

Many aftermarket pulleys appear to use 6203's but I can't find the detail for the standard pulley.

tried a search, but couldn't narrow them down enough...

Cheers, Nick

It's probably cheaper to buy the entire pulley assembly, to be honest.

Thanks for the response, But I'm in the UK, and the parts here are way dearer :(

The ex stock parts here are like £50 where as i have seen complete Idler prices in the States @ $15-$25 ...adding in the same again in some instances for shipping to the Uk, I'm back to the same prices...

I have access to a good local bearing distributer, so if I can find out the correct bearing first, I can buy one and have it ready for a quick all in one job of Remove-press out old-press in new-replace pulley in my lunch break at work. as we have a fly press handy.

Cheers, Nick

Bought a new pulley 3 weeks ago. less than $20.00. Changed in 5 minutes.
Sure.... if I was in the States I would do the same :)

I could order one from the States, but Shipping usually doubles the price on Items like this, and possibly delays/customs etc, hence I jsut wanted to pick up a bearing from a local shop and fit it in 10 mins rather than 5 :)

I dont suppose you kept your old one? Od and id /width measurements would do :)

again, I can take this off and get details then refit and order etc, I had just hoped to do the job once ... :)

Cheers, Nick

Sorry about that, didn't see where you're located at. If I had an old one, I'd pull the bearing and measure it for you, but unfortunately I don't.

No Worries :) I appreciate most people would simply buy a new or even an uprated pulley and just 'lob' the old one once removed anyway :yup:
