(pictures)Alternator: clutch pulley or no? Sign In

Hi guys and gals,
Does my alternator have a clutch pulley? I went to purchase one yesterday only to find out that there are alternators with and without clutch pulleys. Thanks!

This is a 4 cyl. 2007 Camry SE

That's no standard "clutch" but a different pulley. Many you use your old pulley on the replacement alternator if needed. It appears like that one might have been an idler if this had some other equipment?
If you think that's a clutch take belt off, you are anyway and see if it's one thing or two. I don't see power to it so no it's ONE pulley, no clutch

EDIT - PS: It is different - match it up with replacement. Most places will swap them for you............

Yes, that IS a clutch pulley and it requires a special tool to remove it.


PS, I removed your pictures as they are way too large and making the thread hard to read. If you need to repost them, please reduce the size first.
