    Hey everybody. I need to fix that screech coming from somewhere around my serpentine belt. I bought a new belt (see my next post), and I am thinking that noise could be the idler pulley since it has a visible wobble (if that's not it, then I go to the alternator and then the power steering pump). I figured while I am replacing the belt, I'll replace the idler pulley too.

    Can I just pick one up at an auto parts place (like Napa or God-forbid Pep Girls)? Any idea on $$?

    And do I just take the bolt outta the old one and screw the new one on or is it more complicated?

    Thanks!!!
