Can anyone tell me if I can replace the pulley? The bloke at the shop says they sell just the pulley but looking at mine looks like you can't remove the pulley.

ford sells it as a single piece. you can remove the old pulley but you will have to cut it off and replace the mounting stud with a bolt of some sort.

unless you have access to machining equiptment get a new unit from fraud.

I was expecting in the $200 bracket. Just doing overdue maintenance and all those little things I knew about are rapidly adding up to quite a few dollars.
