Question about 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis
I was told to set the parking brake and shift it into gear. I tried that and it failed to stop it from rotating.
The quick and easy method which is done in all the shops is to use an air powered impact gun. Sometimes the electric impact guns will work.The bolt that holds the balancer on has probably got Locktite on it or something similar.If you have oxy-acetylene gear you could try warming it up some first. You could try getting a couple of friends with some rope wound around the balancer and a piece of wood to wedge it while you put pressure on the bolt. I have tried all of the above with a wide range of success.Chances are you will end up renting or borrowing an air compressor and an impact gun for half a day.good luck

SOME TIMES YOU CAN GET A LOANER TOOL FOR A PART STORE THAT WILL HELP YOU GET IT OFF BUT THE BEST WAY IS A AIR IMPACT GUN

You can or may be able to rent one from one of your local parts houses like NAPA or Autozone.

You will have to brace the crankshaft somehow, either by way of the flywheel, or the pulley. The trick to getting the bolt to break is "heat". Propane will sometimes work, but it's generally not hot enough. You want to get that bolt glowing if you can, and hit it with air impact then. Be careful not to burn yourself!
I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

The bad about these are if the flasher is bad than it's internal inside the steering wheel there is no flasher for these outside of the column except the interceptor models i have one my self and mine whent out too. I also changed the blinker bulbs because there double fillament and if one fillament goes they tend to flash really fast. This is from experience
