SOURCE: I need to find out how the harmonic balancer

The flywheel holder is to keep the crankshaft from turning while you remove the crankshaft pulley
bolt(s).

There are alternatives to stabilizing the crank -- I sometimes just put a piece of 1x2 lumber under the belt going around the crank pulley.

An air (impact) wrench is a good way to remove the bolts without having to hold the crank.

You can also put a squeeze clamp across the belt to keep it tight while you loosen the bolt.

There are many ways which I'm sure others on this post will describe.

But, once you get the crank pulley off, remove the balancer bolt(s). (Don't know exactly what bolt configuration you have -- but you already know that.)

You'll see the puller bolt holes in the balancer. This is where the puller bolts go. Put the bolts thru the appropriate slots in the puller and then into the balancer and tighten the base of the puller. Then you tighten the main bolt of the puller which pushes agains the center of the crank and forces the balancer off.

If you need more info, please let me know.

SOURCE: how to take off harmonic balancer on 1999 chevy

There is a tool made for that specific job. Many of the larger parts stores will loan or rent you one. It is called a harmonic balancer puller. (fancy name huh?) They aren't too expensive to buy but unless you do a lot of engine work it's likely not something you will use often.

Harmonic balancer removal


Hello:

I have removed several of the harmonic balancer bolts, and it is difficult to hold the harmonic balancer from spinning when you remove the bolt. The bolt is normal thread, and removal is counterclockwise. There is a Honda holding tool you can get, or possibly borrow from a autoparts store. I always use either an impact wrench or a long breaker bar, and hold the harmonic balancer from rotating with a chain style wrench. I use an old belt to keep from damaging the damper pulley.
Good luck!

I need a how to to change harmonic balancer for 1995 nissan maxima. step by step


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.
