The Pulley-Kit is a major part of a vehicle’s transmission system. It is responsible for transferring the power from the engine to the wheels. So, obviously it is under a tremendous amount of pressure even during normal driving conditions. It is for this reason that many modern cars have switched from using a belt type system to a chain. However, the bearings, and the pully itself still wears out and when it does they need to be replaced. While the kits are a dime a dozen you’ll always want to invest in a genuine kit. That way you know that they will last long hence ensuring that your investment is protected in the long term.
Generally speaking the pulley does not have to be replaced. In most cases it is the bearing or the chain / belt that will have to be replaced. But if a mechanic recommends a pulley replacement then its important that you buy the complete Pulley-Kit. The kit includes everything like nuts and bolts to ensure a successful installation. That said before you decide to replace any part make sure that you get it examined by a professional. Most pulleys are designed to be robust which means that they can last very long. If you hear squeaking noises or the belt sticks it is most likely a bearing issue.
