SOURCE: Mitsubishi Eclipse Harmonic Balancer 3.0L Removal

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!

I'm having trouble finding a crank shaft pulley for a 96 mercury sable

This is called a harmonic balancer and the purpose of the rubber is to allow the crankshaft power impulses to be cancelled out by the steel pulley bonded to the rubber . It will available as a genuine part and most good aftermarket shops and engine rebuild shops will have them in stock. All you may have to supply is the vin number of the vehicle or the engine family letters of the plate

What size belt do I need to bypass Mercury Sable AC Compressor

I had to do the same thing on my Toyota Avalon. I used a flexible cloth measuring tape to measure around the pulleys (minus the A/C, of course). I had to cut the pulley off the Avalon A/C compressor because of interference issues. You may or may not have to do the same.

1997 Mercury Sable LS

The harmonic balancer is what the pulley that drives the power steer pump and alternatoer is bolted to, if it is no longer servicable then there is no way to make the other parts work.Ibelieve that your mechanic is correct as there are really no other explanation for the symptoms you describe
