I recently got my 2001 525 wagon serviced, and was told that my crankshaft pulley (vibration damper) was debonding.
The car itself is feeling a little rough - not much, but when you've been driving every day for a few years, you get to notice even the slightest little bump and squeak.
The dealership told me they wanted $800 to fix it, so I told them I'll think about it.
So my questions are : what are the symptoms I would expect to see if this debonding were really taking place ? Can I see it for myself ? Where ? If it broke entirely, what would happen ?
And: $800 is a lot of money (for me anyway) - does this sound like a reasonable price to repair this part ?
