2006 F350 6.0 Tensioner Pulley replacement / Bearing

Hi guys. Just picked up a new to me 2006 F350, and it's making an annoying bearing noise from the serp. belt tensioner pulley that is inward more toward the engine. I was able to get the belt off easily by simply pulling hard on the belt from the passenger fender and flipping up the lock tab on the tensioner. I spun the pulleys 1 by 1 and found the culprit. In order for me to remove the bad pulley I have to take the tensioner off, which involves draining the cooling system and pulling the shroud out. I'm wondering if both the bearings can be replaced on the tensioner pulleys rather than having to buy the pulley itself. I know the 1 pulley on the tensioner is just a 6203 bearing, but I can't get the other off easily to see.

*Update* , Just called Ford, and they won't sell the pulleys separately, you have to buy the complete tensioner @ $239.00 CDN. Which reinforces my post even more.

Another update to my own post :

Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum

Basically, yes both bearings can be replaced. Also, you can remove the tensioner without pulling the shroud. Easy!

Both of the bearings are the same and can be pressed out easily. 6203 bearings (Any bearing supply store).

Hope this post helps others.
