I haven't seen one, 'cause I heard about the problem and had mine replaced early :-) ... but from what I've seen surmised, the little pulley spins way too fast and burns out the bearing, then the plastic parts melt, and you know the story from there. The large pulley spins much slower due to it's larger size and doesn't seem to have the same problems. Most folks replace them both since they are only about $35 each. But, if you're having the dealer do it, then you have to pay labor too, and it costs you more. You can DIY if you're handy with a wrench. Bob
