    Ensure that the serpentine belt idler bearing didn't seize. Remove the drive belts, ensure all pulleys and idlers turn freely. If it is indeed the crankshaft pulley that needs to be replaced the crankshaft pulley bolt needs to be removed and the pulley needs to be withdrawn using a puller that uses two bolts that screw into crankshaft pulley hub.

    Forgot pulley from the dealer may be $250 to $300, a company called Dormin probably has the pulley available aftermarket.
    Labor about 1.3 to 1.5 hour

    $283.15 as of 11/27/2009 Mine is going out after 195,000 miles second part only that I had to change out besides a starter... what a car.. the pulley I"m told is made of two pieces or separated by rubber... the rubber tends to dry rot.. after exposed to oil from the engine..
