As some of you know, i posted two threads on here asking why the hell was a i hearing screeching noise coming from my engine. Some people thought it would of been my alternator tensioner. Well on saturday while i was driving, my alternator quit working... drove the car home, it was a 20 mile drive too.. Popped my hood and saw that the tensioner itself came completely loose. idk how either so don't ask me. tightened it down started the car. immediately heard a loud grinding noise, so bad it vibrated the whole fucking car. i said screw it. im going to sleep. did some research on here. and in the morning i went outside, i tried my luck to see if it really was the crank pulley. i read on here that our crank pulleys will fail after a period of time. yea, it whas that. that bitch wiggled so damn loose. here are the pics. ENJOY...


as you can tell, the belt isnt on the pulley


BAM



i would highly invest in buying a spare one people. haha

I have been having problems for the last year with these things went through

3 with the millenia and 0 with the 626....I bought 2 spares and got a j/y one,took

it to work, welded some tabs (low heat of course) from the outer ring to the

inside of the pulley...so far two months and counting and everything is ok.
