Yes that pulley needs to be replaced since the bearings are shot. If the pulley looks good providing the bearing did not eat away the pulleys housing the bearing sets into you can purchase a replacement bearing at
The old bearing has numbers on it so it can be matched up this way

OK, having REAL hard time looking up the diagrams today, however, given that the engine will turn (at the crankshaft) in a clockwise direction, 1) first locate the tensioner pulley(s) {there is usually only one per belt, and they are mounted to a bar/ arm that will move, SEE FIG A} AND the idler pulley(s) for each belt/ pulley track {the path over each set of pulleys as they are away from the engine face} ((e.g. if there are two pulleys on the crankshaft that are face to face, then there would be two tracks for a belt (one each) to go around all of the pulleys on that track)){e.g. #1 in FIG A is one belt track/ path. and # 3 is a different track/ path}

12_3_2011_8_31_38_pm.gif where #2 is the tensioner pulley in this example.

2) starting from the crankshaft, go along the bottom of the pulley towards the left of the engine face to the next pulley, if that pulley is smooth on the round part, then that means that the outside of the serpentine belt goes there, if it is grooved, then the inside of the serpentine belt goes there. and follow the path around the clock (so to speak ) for each path.

Some parts dealers will show you the diagrams for your vehicle, but some won't. the diagram(s) MAY be in your owners manual.
good luck.

I changed the serpentine belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 now when I start it it idles low and then kills. I changed the crankshaft position sensor and it does the same thing. I took the crank shaft postion...

Rattling is most likely the original problem. I would say you have a bad bearing in one of your pulleys. Usually the A/C compressor one causes a loud rattle when it goes out, sometime the alternator one will also. Release tension on belt and try to wobble pulleys by hand to feel for slop in pulley bearings. If you find any significant slop, the pulley baering is most likely bad. (Your tesioner pulley itself can also be the culprit) sloppy pulley= bad bearing = drag= load on engine =bad idle and or kill motor.

Serpentine belt keeps coming off 1999 pontiac grand prix 3.1 engine

there must be a bad pulley, or something out of line, remove the belt and spin each pulley to make sure they spin freely, then shake each one to make sure they dont have a lot of play,take a good look at the waterpump pulley and ac pulley, also the tensioner starts to bend outward when it gets weak,

Our 1997 Mazda Protege keeps breaking serpentine belts, gauls them up

Remove the belt and make sure all of the accesories spin freely. All should spin freely except the crank shaft which is the lowest pully. If they all spin freely then I would say it is most likely the tensioner itself and they should be replaced on high mileage vehicles anyway.
