depends on which pulley we're talking about. alternator, power steering pump, idler, or tensioner, or A/C compressor even.
The best way to do this is to have them diagnose what might be wrong first. Pay the diagnostic fee if u must, but at same time, get a quote from them with an agreement that if u agree to let them do the job, they'll incorporate the diagnostic fee as part of the repair price.
Don't commit to the repair immediately, get a signed quote but just say you can't have them do it right away ;-)
Don't be afraid decline repairs either...(tht's my subtle way of saying "i'll need a 2nd opinion from somewhere else..." ;-)
