    You can replace JUST the pulley...there are rubber bits inside that wear down!

    Replace just the PULLEY only....

    Save yourself cash - garage may say its the compressor!

    Search and you will see a recent thread on this!

    Pulley for mine from TPS is £140 so I'm holding off doing it for the moment as it's not really a big problem yet.
