The belt tensioner is extremely noisy, can just the pulley itself be changed? Iam having trouble locating just a new pulley.

I just replaced one & you need to replace the whole assembly as no one sells just the pulley.

If you have not replaced the timing belt as of yet I would say to do it then as you have to remove all the items to replace the tensioner/mount assembly.

You will have to change the entire tensioner assembly. It should be only one bolt through the base of the tensioner. As far as removing it without taking the engine out, you're best bet would be to take the engine mount bolt loose through the access hole in the passenger front wheel well. Once the engine is supported of course. When you have the main bolts loose, take the mount loose from the upper frame. When that is all loose, you can jack the engine up a bit to give you more access to the tensioner. If you want more room, take the main through bolt from the front mount. CAUTION!!! Don't jack the engine up to high or you may damage something. Also, you may need to take the air box loose from the back to get the engine high enough. the mount and all can be removed by removing the two bolts on the bottom going into the exhaust manifold.

Not sure if you still have this car but Auto Zone sells just the "pulley" for $26.00. There still isn't an easy way to do it....but at least you don't have to buy a $350.00 part now.
