SOURCE: BAD HARMONIC BALANCER

To remove the harmonic balancer on my 1992 Pathfinder, I needed to loosen the alternator and power steering belts, remove the cooling fan (4 10 mm nuts), remove the radiator (2 10 mm  bolts hold it to the frame, remove top and bottom hose [The drain **** is covered by what appears to be a coolant line], as well as the overflow tube to the reservoir. With a 3/4" impact gun and a 27 mm socket, remove the bolt that retains the alt, ps shieves and the harmonic balancer to the crankshaft. With a large 3 jaw puller, remove the harmonic balancer with the pully sheives as an assembly. I do not recommend attempting the removal without the puller.
To  put it back on, you will need a large torque wrench for the crankbolt and a small torque wrench for with a crowsfoot for the fan nuts.

SOURCE: Remove the harmonic balancer without a puller?

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.

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...

First remove right front tire and support vehicle with a jack stand. Remove splash guard lower portion near the harmonic balancer. Remove all drive belts. First remove the A/C alternator belt. Loosen the 14mm bolt at the front of the belt tenioner and then loosen the tensioner bolt (it is the one that stands out, you use a socket on it.). The power steering adjuster bolt with be gained from the bottom. It has a 12mm bolt head on it. You will break the jamb bolt loose first and then loosen the adjusting bolt. Pull down on the belt the help move it after you've loosened it some.Then remove harmonic balancer bolt (19mm).If the harmonic balancer will not slide off the crankshaft then use a two finger gear puller. Place the harmonic balancer bolt back in the crankshaft but do not tighten it. Leave it about a half inch from being all the way in. Next place the puller onto the harmonic balancer (one finger on each side securely press into the belt groove. The center puller bolt will rest against the harmonic balancer bolt head. Tighten the puller bolt and make sure the harmonice balancer bolt does not turn. The balancer should come off at this point.

Harmonic balancer removal


Hello:

I have removed several of the harmonic balancer bolts, and it is difficult to hold the harmonic balancer from spinning when you remove the bolt. The bolt is normal thread, and removal is counterclockwise. There is a Honda holding tool you can get, or possibly borrow from a autoparts store. I always use either an impact wrench or a long breaker bar, and hold the harmonic balancer from rotating with a chain style wrench. I use an old belt to keep from damaging the damper pulley.
Good luck!

It sounds like a lifter i was told it was the harmonic balancer by several people i replaced it car stick making ticking noise and picks up speed slow


I am curious why they said harmonic balancer and you replaced it, there is a crank sensor near the harmonic balancer was it rattling or loose they have a tendency to get loose,the harmonic is the big main pulley when that breaks because it is vulcanized then yes it tick and your car looses power.You check sparkplugs for being loose and not being tighten up,check the air filter too,I am sticking with the Harmonic balancer this time remove the drive belt but dont do it too long or it will overheat just for 2 minutes maximum see if the noise goes away. 2 minutes only battery wont charge also

I have read the question about the crankshaft pulley wobbling really bad and needing a harmonic balancer and my question is....is the harmonic balancer and the crankshaft the same thing? I have the same...


The end of the crankshaft is usually called a snout, because that is what it looks like — just a shaft sticking out of the front of the engine between 1½" and 2" in diameter, with a threaded hole in the front, and a key-way along the side.

The harmonic balancer slides over the end of the crankshaft, and is held in place by a bolt and washer goiing into the front of the crankshaft.

The harmonic balancer usually has a ring around the outside separated from the part that goes over the crankshaft by a ring of neoprene. The neoprene and that outer ring are the vibration damper, preventing the crankshaft from ringing. On the face of the balancer the pulleys for accessories are mounted.

Every engine I have worked on — except motorcycles, lawnmowers and outboards — use this arrangement.

Regarding your case, I would do the disassembly first, then — with the parts in your hand — go get the replacement parts. Best guarantee I know of to make sure you get the right parts.

Harmonic balancer bad car runs real bad


The harmonic balancer controls the triggering of the combined crankshaft/camshaft sensor. This controls ignition plus fuel injection. Replace the balancer and adjust the sensor or replace it if damaged.

How to remove a harmonic balancer bolt from a 98 nissan maxima


In the past I have had to use a 1 inch impact to brake that bolt loose. It is a monster and it is regular thread. If you dont have a big compressor and super impact I have held the engine a made a breaker bar and broke it loose that way and make sure to keep spraying it.
