engine pulley rattle?

-Does the Pulley 1100320804 ever break or rattle?
-Can bearings-only be changed, or is it always a matter of changing the whole pulley?

Thanks, as usual!


It depends on if the pulley is an original or an early one.  The early ones can have the bearings replaced, but the later ones are one time use.  The pulleys are so inexpensive not that I just usually buy a whole new one.
