Is yours noisey? If so then all you need to do is replace the bearing which is available at any bearing shop. Alternatively, Pop the seales off with the point of a razor blade then apply fresh grease then it should be fine for quite a while.

That's what i would have done if i knew the bearing was shot, driving down the freeway today all i heard was a squealing noise, saw alot of smoke coming from the engine once i pulled over and opened the bonnett i saw that the pulley was hanging off and the bearing (only two balls were there) it was glowing red!
