SOURCE: What is the trick to removing the harmonic balancer on a stratus

Theres no trick. It has to be cocked or something from all the pulling. Try tapping it back on, use spraylube on the crank and try again. Good luck.

The best way i know of, is to weld on a piece of flat metal so that the puller has something to grab.
Or if your using a cheap puller, you may want to just weld the arm to the balancer (i have done this with a $20 autozone puller)

How do I remove harmonic balancer on 2005 dodge stratus sxt 2.4 dohc. Which motor mounts do I disconnect?


You need a balancer puller. You have to jack the car up. Use jacks stands. Put them on the body, not the frame. You have to remove the bolts to the frame(with the jack under the frame) on the passenger side and lower it down to get the balancer off. To get the balancer back on, line it up, then tap it back on enough to get at least 5 full turns on the bolt. Then, pull it down with the bolt. If you don't have an impact gun to do this job. You will also have to remove the starter and have some one hold the flywheel from moving. large screw driver or pry bar works.

I have an 2006 dodge stratus.im changeing the front crank seal.do I have to pull the engine out to remove the harmonic balancer?


You should be able to get to the harmonic balancer while it's in the car. Remove right tire( use jack stands to hold the car up- not a jack). remove the inner splash guide and the balancer will be exposed. Using 3 jaw puller to remove harmonic balancer

I cannot remove the harmonic balancer. What am I doing wrong? We have tried the harmonic balancer puller and it simply isn't budging. Please help?


you need a dodge puller it is the only type of puller you can use. when you get one you will see it comes with a set of shafts that go in the bolt hole to push ageist, a 1/2 impact also helps they are tight....GOOD LUCK

How to replace a timing belt in a 2005 dodge stratus


You Just have to remove the bolt from the transmission side ***** right in front of the cooling fans. And remove the front motor mount. Then use a jack with a wooden block to support the engine and jack it a few inches and you will have all the room you need. BTW, you will need to rent the special harmonic balance puller tool from you local parts store.

Need the tool to take the crankshaft off of a 2002 Dodge Stratus


I think you mean the harmonic balancer, which is the pulley mounted at the front of the crankshaft. (You need to remove the engine and all of the pistons to remove the crankshaft itself.) Check your local parts store for a harmonic balancer puller -- I got one from NAPA for about $75 that allowed me to pull the balancer without removing the radiator/condenser.

96 dodge stratus timing belt


You may want to have a mechanic do this, not as easy as replacing an accessory belt. But if you decide to do it you will definitley need a timing light, 3 jaw gear puller, a harmonic balance puller and many other tools most people dont have in their garage
