Question about Buick Cars & Trucks
I have removed the serpenitne belt, drained the oil, removed the harmonic balancer and i'm not sure what else has to be removed and in what order to remove the parts. not sure wher all of the bolts are located and the easiest way to access them
If you are going to work on this car.. I suggest that you obtain the Chilton Manual.. sometimes these are available to borrow from your local library.. if not try Rockauto.com and purchase one.
Further I suggest that you take lots of pictures as you disassemble so you can get it back together.

The rubber in the balancer has broken down and the inner and outer pieces shift and rub on the cover. You need a new balancer.

i had used three bolts they have to be 6mm thik and like about 6 inches long then you install some flat washers by the head and use a regular crank pulley remover, you'll see three little holes inside the groevs at front side of pulley and there is where you install the bolts

Get a proper manual like Haynes (amazon, parts store, Haynes.com). You should not have to take either main pullel or cam pulley off to change timeing belt, you DO want a new tensioner and and new idler pulley (if there is one). Failure to replace these may result in a later failure that wipes out the blet, and possibly the motor (if it is an interference motor).
If you can change the oil pump from working on the front side of the motor, you are either a magician or a contortionist;!) and I need you to help me work on my car;~) It's pretty rare for an oil pump to go bad before 400K km or 300K miles ... the bloddy things are in a constant bath of oil!

the bolts you are looking to remove are located on the top of the light housing. It only takes 2 of them to remove the housing. One is about 6 to 8 inches long, and the other one is much shorter than that. Just unscrew and remove them, and pull the housing straight out.
