Wow..I wish I would have seen this thread sooner. I could have run down to the local u-pull-it and gotten you a bracket since you are located pretty close to me right now...( while I'm in town) Any small easy part to pull that I can get to while wearing nice clothing and not have to crawl under the vehicle...I'll go pull. That bracket is one of them. Better yet, I can tell you where to get them in the Shreveport-Bossier City area. But if it's expensive....you're better off letting me get it since I've known the owner of the U-pull-it for many years and can get it cheaper in some cases.

Thanks, I really appreciate that, but I've already ordered the part and it should be in today. Also I don't have any way to get out of town right now, since this is my only vehicle. As it is, I'm going to have to get a taxi to go pick up the part from the dealer.

I had a similar problem and fixed it by drilling (carefully) right through the bracket and putting a long bolt through to act as a spindle. I then secured the pulley with a nut and washer. It worked nicely and was a lot cheaper than buying a new bracket.
