Remove the cooling fans assy, remove the center bolt from the balancer, then using the special balancer, remove the balancer. Autozone had this tool you could borrow.

SOURCE: does the harmonic balancer need

Hello mue037,

Yes, the harmonic balance pulley must be removed as well as the timing belt. The water pump is driven by the timing belt.

1999 Ford Taurus. Can see crankshaft spinning fine coming out of block. Nut on end holding harmonic balanced spinning fine too. Harmonic balancer doesn't spin. How to fix? Do I need to pull the engine to...


There is a key way in the crankshaft and the balancer with a woodruff key that keeps it locked in place. The woodruff key resembles a half moon shape. You will have to remove the balancer to see what kind of damage there is and go from there.

92 Park Avenue, I need help replacing the harmonic balancer. I dont have a impact wrench. I just have a 1/2 craftsman and the socket. I cant get the bolt off the harmonic balancer.


About all you can do is brace your ratchet and socket against the frame of the car, or even against a block of wood, and turn the key just a touch, to turn the engine over. You'll have to be careful of the engine rotation direction.

How do i remove the harmonic balancer bolt to replace the timing cocer gasket on a 1999 ford tarus se


If there is no air-compressor and an impact gun to remove the harmonic balancer bolt, then there are two other ways to remove it. Either remove the inspection cover at the bell-housing and use a large flat head screwdriver to wedge between the flex-plate drive gear teeth and the engine block so that the engine is locked-up, and then remove the harmonic balancer bolt with a long breaker bar and a lot of muscle power, or for the more advanced mechanics and only they should attempt this, place a long breaker bar on the harmonic balancer bolt and then brace the breaker bar up against the frame of the vehicle so that when the engine turns over the breaker bar will stop on the vehicle frame, and keep in mind that the crankshaft will turn clockwise or to the right, and when you are looking for some place to brace the breaker bar be sure that nothing else will get in the way or it will be damaged. Be sure that the breaker bar is on the harmonic balancer bolt properly, and place the breaker bar about 1 to 2 inches from the vehicle frame so that when the engine turns the breaker bar will lock up against the vehicle frame, and while holding the breaker bar in place have someone turn the ignition key and give the starter a bump, and be very sure to keep your hand away from where the breaker bar is going to contact the vehicle frame, or your fingers will get smashed by the breaker bar when it turns into the frame so do not attempt this if you are unfamiliar with using hand tools, and the starter should break the harmonic balancer bolt loose easily, so be very sure that your hands are out of the way of getting hurt when the starter motor is used to break the harmonic balancer bolt loose.

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...

2001 Ford Taurus, Harmonic balancer removal


I had this problem and had to block the teeth of the harmonic balancer with a 2-ton hydraulic jack handle (use an assistant to hold) while I torqued on the bolt with a 4-way lug wrench and a length of pipe. Took a minute, but finally we heard the "ping" of the seal breaking and were able to remove that BAB.
