You will have to take the belt off and then take the bolt out of the center that holds it onto the crankshaft. then You need a "harmonic balancer" puller, It has slots that bolt to the inner part of the balancer and you screw in the big center bolt. As you tighten the bolt it "pulls" the balancer. Here is a picture;
This usually requires a special tool to pull the balancer off, but the last one I took off slipped off by hand. What you have to do is first is loosen the nut. It takes a large socket. 19mm or bigger. You may need to take the plastic skirt off the fender well to get access. Next, you will need some way to lock the engine from turning. If you have a manual trans, put it in a high gear and set the parking brake. If you have an automatic, look for something near the pulley that you can poke a good size screwdriver into that will pry against the engine. If nother like that is available, the last resort is to remove and jam the flexplate gear with a vice grip.
Once you have the bolt loose, take all the belts off. Then see if you can pull the damper off by hand. If not, use a 3-jaw puller or borrow/rent a damper puller. Autozone loans pullers for a refundable deposit.
First remove right front tire and support vehicle with a jack stand. Remove splash guard lower portion near the harmonic balancer. Remove all drive belts. First remove the A/C alternator belt. Loosen the 14mm bolt at the front of the belt tenioner and then loosen the tensioner bolt (it is the one that stands out, you use a socket on it.). The power steering adjuster bolt with be gained from the bottom. It has a 12mm bolt head on it. You will break the jamb bolt loose first and then loosen the adjusting bolt. Pull down on the belt the help move it after you've loosened it some.Then remove harmonic balancer bolt (19mm).If the harmonic balancer will not slide off the crankshaft then use a two finger gear puller. Place the harmonic balancer bolt back in the crankshaft but do not tighten it. Leave it about a half inch from being all the way in. Next place the puller onto the harmonic balancer (one finger on each side securely press into the belt groove. The center puller bolt will rest against the harmonic balancer bolt head. Tighten the puller bolt and make sure the harmonice balancer bolt does not turn. The balancer should come off at this point.
