which pulley is this?

Just wondering if anyone would be able to help me diagnose which pulley this one is on my 1995 m42. It's under the alternator. It's making noise, so it's in need of a replacement.

Thank you.

Are you absolutely sure it's the pulley and not one of the tensioners thats close by. Better double check that..usually the bearings on the tensioners start to squeal.

Agreed ... pulleys don't squeak. Tensioners and bearings do, or the part that the pulley is attached to ... in your case, that's the power steering pump. It usually groans and makes other noises, nit squealing. How old is your belt?
