Default serpentine idler and tensioner bearings

Are these pulleys serviceable? Anyone have the part numbers of the bearings if so?

thanks

I bought 2 National 203FF for the idler pulleys, the tensioner pulleys take a different bearing and O'reillys didn't have a sealed version in stock. My husband laughed at me - he was not able to press the new bearings in on his 99 Super Duty, and ended up buying pulleys. I haven't tried yet, but I will.

Is on my to do list.
Both bearings are held in by snap rings.
I can't see why they wouldn't press out, new ones in.
That was my plan anyway.

You can replace the bearings, but the surface face of the pulley also wears out. I just replace the entire pulley myself, then keep the old ones for spares on the trail.

I replaced my bearings, took the koyo bearing part number to a local bearing and hydraulic shop and they cross referenced them for me...quiet and smooth now and I get to keep the metal pulley vs cheap plastic that most places offer now..oh. And Napa was no help crossing pn#s for me.

After looking at Rovers North and Lucky8 websites, I see the only way to replace the tensioner pulley is by purchasing a complete tensioner assembly?? I see where replacing just the bearing on that "plastic" pulley would be good to save on some dough, but you still wouldn't have a road spare. I need to replace mine now so I have a spare!! Maybe feebay has one..
