Question about Cars & Trucks
Balancer has failed. looks like I cannot get it out of their without lowering or pulling the engine.
Front wheel drive? try taking off the passenger front wheel and see if that opens things up a bit. even remove the inner wheel well..usually plastic..hardest part will be using the puller tool and getting the room to do so..look it up in a manual and see(sorry I dont have one here)good luck repost please thnx

It has to be pressed off with a harmonic balancer removing tool similar to this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Parts-Accessories_Automotive-Tools__HARMONIC-BALANCER-DAMPER-PULLEY-PULLER-REMOVER-TOOL_W0QQitemZ260372587534QQddnZPartsQ20Q26Q20AccessoriesQQadiZ2871QQddiZ2811QQadnZAutomotiveQ20ToolsQQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotors_Automotive_Tools?hash=item260372587534&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=72%3A1171%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318
You can or may be able to rent one from one of your local parts houses like NAPA or Autozone.

You can try simply wiggling the balancer and see if you get lucky. A few taps with a rubber mallet may convince it to come free. Worst case get the kit. You should not need to remove the radiator. Do make sure that you have the engine blocked so you don't lose your timing mark placement.

Yes a harmanic balancer from tha corolla is the same thing. I had to do the same thing with my 95 geo. It works out to be a lot cheaper buying for a toyota than a geo.
