Alternator pulley replacement

#1
Hi everyone,
I've got a problem with my 2010 Forte. Apparently something went wrong, and my alternator pulley failed. First I noticed that bearing squeak at idle, and when starting up twice there was loud squeal. Also, sometimes the battery light came on. So I went to a garage to check on it and noticed that it is loose.
So I am wondering, if any of you guys replaced it? I am not the mechanic, but can do teh basic things about the vehicle.
Also, I plan purchasing an aftermarket pulley, so wanted to ask, if anyone tried any of these? Something other than KIA?
Thanx!!!!

Gates has the 37165P, which is the required overrun pulley. However, you'll also need a 'special' installation tool in order to complete the job.
