here's the REAL beeeeyotch about the whole thing -- subaru doesn't sell the pulley/bearing separately, so you have to buy a WHOLE new assembly with the bracket, then disassemble that (the new bracket didn't fit my car) to get just the pulley/bearing assembly, and stick that on the old bracket. the entire assembly should run you $90-100 new...ugh... -adam-
Damn, that sounds about right too... Its starting to make a constant noise now as well albiet hard to hear.
Anyway, i have a subaru specific recycler yard 15 minutes from here I can check if it the thing just dies out like that...
