Buy a set of Left Hand Drills, Centre pop the bolt and start drilling make sure the drill is in reverse mode, the bolt will star backing off within a few seconds, I have used these drills for removing bolts of all sizes on a regular basis, easyouts snap, last week I removed 35 bolts in under 20mins.

Hi poohbear
You will need to use thing called an "easyout" or  "eziout" how to get a broken - 5c4e174.jpg
you have to drill the center of the broken bolt, then gently hammer in the eziout, to then wind the broken stud loose. You may notice that the eziout has the reverse direction thread, so the harder you wind it out, the more it winds into the broken bolt. Use plenty of penetrating oil about the stud, even let it soak for a bit. Just don't break off the eziout, they are super hard, and you will not be able to drill that one out. You can buy then from most hardware stores. Messy, but the only real way to get the the problem solved.I hate it when a stud snaps, it happens all the time, usually the last one to be undone.  Good luck.

    Sure, just work carefully. If it is bent, it should only the bolt clear of the hole that is bent. I unless the casting (crank end?) is smashed as well.  Worst case if it is bent badly, you may have to use an angle grinder to grind it off to the point that you can then work with it. At least the end ground flat to allow for you to drill at right angles to the hole. Even a tap with a cold chisel in the opposite direction the bolt is bent in can fracture the bent bolt off.

You will have to use an "easy out" . You first drill a hole into the bolt. The get an "easy out" and hammer it in to the hole that you drilled. Turn conterclockwise. There are different sizees for different sized bolts.Your parts dealer will give you more info.

How to remove harmonic balancer on my 2000 toyota celica gt 1.8l


you need to loosen the alternator to get the belt off then undo the bolt on the harmonic balancer. If you can't remove the harmonic balancer with a few prys you'll need a puller. When putting it back on you'll need to line up the key with the groove in the crank. Once that's done put the belt back on push the alternator back and do up the bolts

How to install balance drive gear on crankshaft 2007 Camry 2.4


Remove old crankshaft pulley ( Harmonic Balancer), by putting sturdy socket,think its 19mm, or 3/4 " on the center crankshaft bolt, with a good size breaker bar, wedge the breaker bar in between the suspension, and drive axle, to keep the breaker bar from spinning, while, you now turn the key inside the car, to engage starter, to spin the crankshaft,which may take several attempts, of turning the key, and putting socket back on, they are very stubborn,to break the center bolt loose,
Then remove harmonic balancer, with a PULLER, which requires 2 bolts, in the threaded holes, one on each side of the now empty center bolt hole, autozone , advance, has these to loan out, only requires deposit, which they give back to you, when you return it.

Broke the harmonic balancer bolt on my 1994 Dodge Intrepid, can the car drive with the bolt broken off about 1/2" deep? It seems snug.


the harmonic balancer is slightly pressed onto the crank shaft. It does require the bolt to hold it into its correct position. If you drive it with the bolt broken the pulley will eventually work its way loose from the crank shaft. This will cause damage to the crankshaft and will cause the accessory belts to come off as well.

Tighten the puller bolt and make sure the harmonice balancer bolt does not turn. The balancer should come off at this point.
