Likely you are talking about the harmonic balancer.
The bolt turns counter clockwise and is generally removed using an air gun. There is another way to do that too but it is a bit dangerous. Using a solid breaker bar (one without jointed end) you can brace the end against the ground with the socket installed on the crank bolt (I actually have a pipe driven into the ground outside just for doing this...I just slide the bar into the pipe and keep it form dropping by using a vise grip on the handle). Once the socket is on the bolt, crank the engine over using the starter, the engine will force the bolt to back out.
After you get the belt installed, tighten it as much as you can by hand and ask a shop to just give it a final tightening with an air gun.
If the socket slips the bar can fly up so be very careful and don't stand where it can hit you!

check your spark plug wires for resistance and or a plug could be fouled or you may have a vac hose off somewhere on the engine.

SOURCE: My Opel Corsa dies down during driving, it will only start again after 7 to 10 mins, l have no clue whats happening.

No idea offhand to be honest i would need my head under the bonnet to know what wrong .could be anything from the gauze filter in the fuel tank on the bottom of the fuel pump becoming chocked up and leaving the car allows it to drop away to a faulty pump overheating or the contacts ,maybe even a ignition module overheating ,Best advice is ask a local mechanic to have a look for you as normally these early opel corsas with the 4 cylinder engine are bullet proof they are even valve free if the timing belt snaps .

Sounds like you not getting enough fuel. Try replacing you fuel filter which sits under neath the rear near the tank. Just follow the line from the tank and you'll see it or it can be a faulty fuel pump You should get 3 bars pressure from it.

There are many things that can cause this, each will set a fault code in the computer control module of the engine and drivetrain (both are fully electronically controlled). So you must have a fault code test run to read these codes and then diagnose the cause(s)

2005 Opel Corsa lite switches off with irregular revs


Front right lower side is the crank sensor ,in line with the crankshaft ,could be this playing up although i have had many problems with this type of engine ,one problem is the computer bolted to the engine ,seem to suffer heat fatigue ,another problem i cannot explain is it just will not start and for this i fit a crank sensor from the earlier version with the toothed front pulley and support then cut the wires from the crank sensor and run them to the one at the front of the engine but they are polarised on the wires so if it doesnt start reverse the wires to the crank sensor ,Now no doubt iam wrong as ever but i do think that the crank becomes magnatised and its affecting the sensor so by moving it to the front pulley it eliminates this problem .
