Why is it hard to get balancer pulley off 98 neon? Tried a pulley puller and impact. Still no luck. What should I do?


Did you take out the center bolt? You have to remove the center bolt, then use a harmonic balancer puller. Not the two or three armed pulley puller, but a harmonic balancer pulley puller-the pullers with jaws that hook around the outside of pulley can ruin a harmonic balancer.
Use the impact gun to remove the center bolt. You won't need an impact gun to remove the balancer pulley. The balancer puller will take it right off the crankshaft, no problem.

Need to pull the harmonic balancer,do i need a puller? and what kind do i need?


In order to remove your harmonic balancer, you will need a harmonic balancer puller. Most harmonic balancer pullers work and look the same. For your specific car it doesn't need a specific one. You can go and pick one up at your local auto parts store. You can either buy it or rent it, depending where you go. Hope this helps.

Cooling fan hits the harmonic balancer. Took the fan blades off and the belt still runs off the pulley. Something seams to be miss aligned but I cant see what it is.


Your harmonic balancer is coming apart. The Balancer has rubber ring that eventually wears. I also know that when people try and use WD40 on the tensioner pulley because the bearing is squeeking the WD40 sometimes works its way to the balancer or accidently sprays on the balancer. The WD40 eats away at the rubber. You will need a removal tool to do this. Where you pick the balancer up they should have this.

it looks like this

Harmonic balancer


You can use a strap wrench and an impact wrench; both are usually rentable from an auto parts store. A puller can usually be rented also.
