Question about 1998 Nissan Pathfinder
The pully array appears to be made up into the balancer. It is not bolted to it. A set of jaw pullers keeps colapsing and popping loose. I cannot find any way the pullies are attatched to the balancer or to remove them.
Most balancers have two parts, the inner crankshaft section is where the huge bolt is and holds it to the crankshaft, they may also be a few smaller bolts around the outside of the big bolt, those hold the belt pulley on to the crankshaft. If it thats kind of setup remove the small bolts and the pulley should come off, you may need to use a wooden hammer etc to get it loose once the bolts are out.

Theres no trick. It has to be cocked or something from all the pulling. Try tapping it back on, use spraylube on the crank and try again. Good luck.

Don't do it . Spend the $15.00 or $20.00 at a parts store or your local pawn shop. you can use seriously damage the harmonic balancer if you try to pry off with anything. the cost to replace it will be well beyond the cost of buying the right tool.

If you have a manual trans, you can put it in gear. if you have an auto. trans. you will need whats called a chain wrench.
This tool will wrap around the pulley and lock it so you can take the bolt loose. Most auto parts will rent for cheap or free.
