SOURCE: harmonic balancer removal. I have nut out but it seems stuck. How do I pull it off. Do I have to remove more than the bolt

Most balancers have a very tight fit to the crank. You will need to use a puller to remove it. If purchasing one dosn't seem economical to you, some auto parts stores rent out specialty tools for free.

SOURCE: Trying to change the timing belt on a 2003 Hyundai

you can put a breaker bar and socket on the bolt and unplug a) the injectors or b) the coils so it wont start and crank it over like 2 times put the breaker bar on the pulley with the handle of the breaker bar touching the ground and u crank it and it'll break free

Remove serpentine belt, to remove bolt turn counter clock wise, you will also need a Harmonic Balancer pulley tool, most auto part places will rent this tool out, good luck, hope this was very helpful.

A impact wrench is the thing. Probably doesn't fit, they spin it right out. I've put the pulley back on and put chain wrench or strap wrench around the pulley to hold the engine from turning.

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.

Removing a harmonic balancer


Most balancers will wiggle off (pull & wiggle) you will need the big centre bolt undone & if 4 small bolts around balancer undo those to cause they are probably bolted to the crank gear.

How do I take off the harmonic balancer on a 4.0 liter engine


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;

Need bolt size to remove a harmonic balancer from a ford sport trac


Most fords are 15/16 inch. butyou didnt state the engine size. Youll also need a harmonic balancer puller and most parts stores can rent you one some times for no charge ( just pay for it and bring it back all together and you'll get all or most of your money back). with the balancer off you'll need to ut it or a new one back on You need a harmonic balancer installer to put it on as beating it back onewith a hammer will damage the balancer and the crank and even the whole engine. If you don't want todo all of this just take it to a mechanic that doesthis work all the time ad hasthe correct tools to do itright. Yes you can beat it off and back on but you'll likly do exensive damage. ( not always). If you don't have the right sized sockets andthe power impac to remove the bolt you had best just hire the job done as this is not a do it youself job unless your a regular ( work all day every day) mechanic.

How do i remove the harmonic balancer bolt to replace the timing cocer gasket on a 1999 ford tarus se


If there is no air-compressor and an impact gun to remove the harmonic balancer bolt, then there are two other ways to remove it. Either remove the inspection cover at the bell-housing and use a large flat head screwdriver to wedge between the flex-plate drive gear teeth and the engine block so that the engine is locked-up, and then remove the harmonic balancer bolt with a long breaker bar and a lot of muscle power, or for the more advanced mechanics and only they should attempt this, place a long breaker bar on the harmonic balancer bolt and then brace the breaker bar up against the frame of the vehicle so that when the engine turns over the breaker bar will stop on the vehicle frame, and keep in mind that the crankshaft will turn clockwise or to the right, and when you are looking for some place to brace the breaker bar be sure that nothing else will get in the way or it will be damaged. Be sure that the breaker bar is on the harmonic balancer bolt properly, and place the breaker bar about 1 to 2 inches from the vehicle frame so that when the engine turns the breaker bar will lock up against the vehicle frame, and while holding the breaker bar in place have someone turn the ignition key and give the starter a bump, and be very sure to keep your hand away from where the breaker bar is going to contact the vehicle frame, or your fingers will get smashed by the breaker bar when it turns into the frame so do not attempt this if you are unfamiliar with using hand tools, and the starter should break the harmonic balancer bolt loose easily, so be very sure that your hands are out of the way of getting hurt when the starter motor is used to break the harmonic balancer bolt loose.

Where is crankshaft sensor located on the 02 explorer xlt, 4.6L, 4x4? How's the best way to change one?


Hello rgates53: My name is Roger And I will answer your question. The crank position sensor is located on the right side of the harmonic balancer. The repair manual refers to dropping the A/C compressor out of the way. Just take the bolts out to gain access needed. Remove 10mm. bolt to remove sensor. See attached picture. Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger44d050a.jpg
