YES! The crank pulley grenaded and left me stranded. It was a quick fix but it came with a stroke of good luck. No parts stores or Dealers had the pulley in stock so my only option was another used one. I got lucky and got one off a bone yard Protege....4 Bone car. The failure of these pulleys is characterized by what appears to be harmless belt squeal....but beware, your pulley may be about to fail!
