main dealer rip off

Recently a bearing noise developed around the auxillary belt area of my v6, on furthur investigation it proved to be the air con tensioner pulley that was at fault.Price check in the main dealer was 80euro+vat as you have to buy the whole pulley. on examining the pulley i was able to remove the bearing by grinding away a thin bit of metal which is folded over the bearing after the bearing is pressed in to the pulley,a trip to my local bearing supplier provided a new bearing for 15euros, [you can get the bearing size off the old one and part no] i fitted the new bearing and was able to fold over some of the old metal lip , not that it was likely to come out as it,s an interference fit, and back on the road for 15euros, better than approx 100euros Paul
