    The balancer comes off halfway but stops. Why wont it come off all the way? Why won't it come off by just pulling on it.

    I'm locating a puller.......is there any good way to keep the crankshaft from spinning when I torque the bolt in on the replacement pulley?

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.

The balancer is pressed on, you will need a proper puller to remove it, be careful not to ruin the threads in the stub of the crankshaft.

You will need a gear or keyway puller to remove the part. There may be other ways, but parts stores generally loan tools. Have them hook ya up!

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.
