Hard to find bearing supplier.

Figured I would share this site with all. I recently had a bearing start to fail on my 03 VW TDI, bearing was the ac compressor pulley bearing, I removed the pulley and removed the bearing and thats when the fun started. Found out real quick it was a specific application bearing and nobody could find or get one. Finally after doing a search online for a couple hours found a few other superceded numbers for it and searched those, To shorten the story a new compressor with new clutch would have been 350 bucks, and get this to by just the clutch assembly alone was 450 bucks. So after searching forever I came across this site and got a new bearing for 33 bucks shipped. savings of over 300 bucks plus the hassle of not having to evac and recharge the ac system.

Hopefully this will save someone time and lots of money in the future.
