Likely you are talking about the harmonic balancer.
The bolt turns counter clockwise and is generally removed using an air gun. There is another way to do that too but it is a bit dangerous. Using a solid breaker bar (one without jointed end) you can brace the end against the ground with the socket installed on the crank bolt (I actually have a pipe driven into the ground outside just for doing this...I just slide the bar into the pipe and keep it form dropping by using a vise grip on the handle). Once the socket is on the bolt, crank the engine over using the starter, the engine will force the bolt to back out.
After you get the belt installed, tighten it as much as you can by hand and ask a shop to just give it a final tightening with an air gun.
If the socket slips the bar can fly up so be very careful and don't stand where it can hit you!

The tok tok sound is probably a blown exhaust gasket. Replace the exhaust manifold gasket. As for the rough idle , replace the distributor cap, cap rotor, spark plugs and wires. With any luck this will take care of the misfire at idle and improve your gas mileage for a minimal cost for the repair.

No idea offhand to be honest i would need my head under the bonnet to know what wrong .could be anything from the gauze filter in the fuel tank on the bottom of the fuel pump becoming chocked up and leaving the car allows it to drop away to a faulty pump overheating or the contacts ,maybe even a ignition module overheating ,Best advice is ask a local mechanic to have a look for you as normally these early opel corsas with the 4 cylinder engine are bullet proof they are even valve free if the timing belt snaps .

Not sure here as to the type as some have a bolt in the block in line with the crank and special tool is used to locate TDC ,If the timing belt broke then you have bent valves anyway so the head will have to come off .If you reply with more details then i will advise how to do it with no timing marks also is this a common rail with just a high pressure pump or is it a intermediate with injector pump but the injectors having electronic sensor on one of the injectors if that makes sense to you
