Is the bearing noisy I was told mine was a couple of yrs ago by NB Industries, they give me a price to replace the whole unit so I checked it myself it was the tension pulley bearing.

It’s a bugger of a job, bearing not cheap either, about $90 a few years ago.

Took it off, down to bearing joint, replaced it, still a same day job easy but I didn’t keep details of part number.

Having said that I’m 95% sure it’s on here somewhere if you’re patient with search.

Also it matters which air con you have, the old sanden type or the newer type, not sure what year they changed.

To be sure it’s better to take bearing out first to ensure you get correct one.

For some strange reason all the icons below like the share, reply, like icons etc on my screen have been about 10x bigger and overlapped each other since this site recieved it's new face lift noticed there fine now.

I paid about 60 bucks for the bearing and changed it on the car. If you undo the brackets there is enough room to slightly drop and angle the compressor down. This allowed me enough access to change it but it was on the hoist. Not overly hard, just fiddly. Bearing supplied through an ac parts mob through repco

When I replaced my AC bearing a few months back I took some photos, but for some reason cannot find where I saved them. This 1st pic I am 99% sure is the bearing from the AC.

These are some other pics I found with the pic above, but I think that looks like the idler pulley.
