The Harmonic balancer is held on to the front of the crank shaft with a bolt. there are pullys pressed onto the harmonic balancer in rubber.If more pulleys are needed for more accessories they are bolted to the harmonic balancer.

Wow!!! I don't think I would put that much faith in gorilla glue. I had the same problem and had to replace the hb pully. My belt ended up slipping and jumped a few teeth causing the car to be badly out of time. Fix it before that happens.

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.

There is a panel inside the wheel well that you can take off that gives you perfect access to the harmonic balancer. A special tool is required. i had my dad make one because he has access to whatever he needs at the factory. but you can get them at the dealer. i have no clue how much they cost. I can't see any way of doing it without the special tool. after you get the tool its pretty simple to get off. it takes alot of force to break the bolt loose though. i used the handle off my jack as a cheater bar. hope this helps...

SOURCE: how do you replace the harmonic balancer pulley on

The short answer to your question is:

1. Raise the car on the passenger side and remove the front wheel.
2. Remove the belts on the harmonic balancer.
3. Remove the retaining bolt.
4. With a puller, jack the harmonic balancer off of the crank shaft. You can rent a puller at your local auto parts store. It is easiest to access the harmonic balancer through the fender, hence the need to remove the wheel.
5. You should also consider replacing the seal around the harmonic balancer to minimize the possibility of a leak later.
6. Install the new harmonic balancer and tighten the retaining bolt to the specified torque (I don't know this off the top of my head).
7. Replace the belts and wheel, and voila...mission accomplished.

This was a short answer to your question. You may wish to consult a repair manual for illustrations, torque specifications, additional instructions, etc. This job is not for the faint of heart. Good luck!

Why is it hard to get balancer pulley off 98 neon? Tried a pulley puller and impact. Still no luck. What should I do?


Did you take out the center bolt? You have to remove the center bolt, then use a harmonic balancer puller. Not the two or three armed pulley puller, but a harmonic balancer pulley puller-the pullers with jaws that hook around the outside of pulley can ruin a harmonic balancer.
Use the impact gun to remove the center bolt. You won't need an impact gun to remove the balancer pulley. The balancer puller will take it right off the crankshaft, no problem.

2001 dodge stratus r/t 3.o liter outside pulley on harmonic balancer fell off. do i need whole new balancer or is there something that came off that holds it on?


ON most engines there is only on pulley as part of the harmonic balancer. It is the on that has the rubber between the pulley and the center bit on the crank. Any other pulleys are normally bolted to this pulley on the center hub piece . I'm thinking that the mount bolts have fallen out.

The Alternator Drive belt and (what i assume is) the timing belt both slipped off. Upon further inspection, we discovered that the lowermost pulley (That both belts actually run along) is sticking out...


The pulley is call harmonic balancer . There is a big bolt that goes in the front of the pulley you need to tighten very strong 130pounds plus. Most likely it is not there it fell off.

Harmonic balancer is going out! do you have to pull the motor ?


No. The balancer can be pulled off from the crank with no problem. It's the main pulley on the engine. It has a big bolt at the center that holds the pulley onto the crank, that bolt needs to come off. Then the pulley (harmonic balancer) can come off.

Pulley location on Pontiac 301 Harmonic Balancer


Haven't laid eyes on one of those for a really long time!!! If you can't get info. you can do it the really "non technical way": stand next to it and eyeball the pulleys...Especially with the belts on, it's easy to tell if you have them aligned properly (don't have to tighten them up, just enough so they are in straight lines.) You would be surprised at how accurate your eyes are!!!

Pulling the harmonic balancer off a 98 nissan pathfinder


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.
