The alternator pulley bearings on my 2005 Aveo LS are starting to complain pretty loudly (makes a wobbling sound & gets worse as the RPMs go up)
The car has 150,000+ miles on it & it's probably not worth replacing the alternator since it's still charging.
Is it possible to replace the pulley only on the alternator?
What I've read online makes it seem like replacing the alternator is fairly difficult & includes removing the throttle body & mounting bracket.
If I can just do the pulley, I'm sure I could replace it myself but the PIMA factor of replacing the alternator makes me more inclined to use a shop if replacing the alternator is my only choice.
If it's possible to just replace the pulley, does anyone have some suggestions where to pick one up at?
I saw a "Mr Gasket Alternator Pulley" on a number of sites but the pictures don't appear to match the part so I'm not real confident on making the purchase...
Any help is greatly appreciated!
