Question about 1998 Saturn SL
I was wondering if it possible to remove the broken bolt in the engine from the idler pulley, without removing the engine? I haven't really checked out the car that close, but it looks as if I may be able to remove the washer resivor, and coolant resivor to get to the bolt. I will have to use a removal tool to get the bolt out. Is this possible? Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.
The idler pully can be removed without removing the engine. I have replaced mine in my 97 SL2. As to the bolt breaking off, that is strange. I assume that if the bolt broke off, then the idler pully also fell off. If I remember, the space is somewhat limited, so getting a removal tool in there could be very difficult, especially if the bolt is flush with the mounting hole. That doesn't sound like a fun project. If bolt protrudes, maybe you can get some vise-grips on it and turn it out.
