As our cars age, the tensioner bearings for the accessory belts wear out. Usually, worn bearings appear as a grinding or squealing noise, but occasionally the bearings will just seize.
This is the correct bearing for the idler pulley for the V8 SHO 96-99cars. The base cost is for just the bearing that you would need to have pressed into your tensioner pulley.
This is a brand new bearing identical to the factory bearing that came with your car.
Be very careful to use a press to install this bearing in your tensioner pulley. This bearing is relatively delicate, and you need to only install it by exerting force on the outer bearing race only. Since this proceedure is delicate and we have even seen dealerships damage bearings, we cannot offer any warranty on these bearings unless we press them into the pulley.
