SOURCE: 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...

You sould replace the belt along with the timing belt. If it gets caught in the timing belt you will have MAJOR EGINE DAMAGE!

Vibration in my Mitsubishi challenger over 60, new tail shaft new bearing in gearbox, still has not fixed. What else could it be?

maybe something loose under the body , stone skirts or worn ball joints , steering or suspension bushes. if its not the engine , or the engine could be out of balance many overhead cam motors have a second counter weight that runs from timeing belt, belt can break but engine shakes at high revs.

What is the thing at the bottom of the fan belt hooked up to?

Not sure exactly what you mean, but normally, the lowest pulley is called the crankshaft pulley, and also includes the vibration damper (technically a counter-weight), and this is all connected to the crankshaft, which is driven by the pistons. The crankshaft runs the length of the engine, and drives the transmission at the opposite end.
If that does not help, you will need to be a bit more specific in your description.

Lancer gl 2004

You will need to replace the timing belt and the balance shaft belt (if applicable). Your car may not have a balance shaft belt. Mitsubishi did away with that belt, but I can't remember what year it started. At 60,000 miles. And again at every 60,000 miles. You should also replace the accy drive belts at that time. If you don't replace the timing belt and it breaks, severe engine damage WILL happen. Hope this helps. Good luck.
