Question about Chrysler Sebring
Posted by Anonymous on
Removing the engine crank pulley bolt requires a high amount of applied torque and often results in turning the engine before the bolt can be loosened. The safest way to keep the engine from turning is a follows: remove a spark plug and feed a length of clothes line rope into the cylinder until it can take no more of the rope. At this point you will be able to apply the amount of torque you need to loosen the bolt safely and the engine will no longer move while you are applying torque because the cylinder will come in contact with the cushion of rope and stop turning, preventing any risk of damage to your engine. This will work nicely with any engine and with any number of cylinders.

SOURCE: remove harmonic balancer
It has to be pressed off with a harmonic balancer removing tool similar to this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Parts-Accessories_Automotive-Tools__HARMONIC-BALANCER-DAMPER-PULLEY-PULLER-REMOVER-TOOL_W0QQitemZ260372587534QQddnZPartsQ20Q26Q20AccessoriesQQadiZ2871QQddiZ2811QQadnZAutomotiveQ20ToolsQQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotors_Automotive_Tools?hash=item260372587534&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=72%3A1171%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318
You can or may be able to rent one from one of your local parts houses like NAPA or Autozone.

You can try simply wiggling the balancer and see if you get lucky. A few taps with a rubber mallet may convince it to come free. Worst case get the kit. You should not need to remove the radiator. Do make sure that you have the engine blocked so you don't lose your timing mark placement.

Remove serpentine belt, to remove bolt turn counter clock wise, you will also need a Harmonic Balancer pulley tool, most auto part places will rent this tool out, good luck, hope this was very helpful.

A impact wrench is the thing. Probably doesn't fit, they spin it right out. I've put the pulley back on and put chain wrench or strap wrench around the pulley to hold the engine from turning.
