Question about 1997 Pontiac Bonneville
My boyfriend is trying to replace the crankshaft sensor on my car. Trouble is, we can't get the pulley off. We have tried a 3-prong puller but all 3 prongs fail to fit in the holes at the same time. We're looking for an easier method or someone to tell us what we're doing wrong. Please help! Thanks!
I had the same problem a few months ago, here is how I got it off. First jack up the car and put it on jack stands (at least the front passenger side) The take a 1/2" drive breakover bar with the correct size socket , I think it is a 25 or 27mm, place it on the bolt in the pully center with the handle of the breakover bar pointing out towards the front of the car and with the handle as close to the ground as you can get it. Now, with the handle of the breakover bar wedged on the ground, simple get in the car and hit the ignition in short bursts, it will break the bolt loose. I know it sounds a little crazy but that is what the machanic at the shop I take all my cars to said to do and it worked the first time I tried it. I had broke 2 rachets and an impact wrench trying to get it off and the breakover bar wedged on to the ground worked perfectlly. Just remember not to have anyone stand around the car as the breakover bar could come out from under the car without warning.
