Can you replace main bearings without removing engine citroen c4 grand picasso 1.6 diesel 2007

You cannot replace the main bearings without removing the engine. only the rod bearings are replaceable if the oil pan will clear chassis for access to crank shaft. Why do you need main bearings on a 2007, these bearings should be good for 500,000 miles. what happened? (run without oil?)

Mitsubishi pajero how to replace front crank seal housing

Do we take it that you want to replace the front crank seal?
If so it will almost certainly require that you drain the cooling system and remove the rad and surrounding cowl. The nut in the centre of the pulley is usually very tight and will likely require a 3/4 drive socket to free it. You will have to remove all the drive belts on the pulley and then remove the pulley. If its a manual trans then select top gear, have an assistant stand on the brakes while you undo the crank bolt. An auto is more difficult. If you have sufficient access then use an airwrench to loosen the bolt. Remove the pulley, pry the seal out, clean up, fit the new seal carefully to ensure its squarely seated in the housing, grease the seal edge and replace everything removed. The only thing you will need ideally is the torque figure for the crank bolt but you will get some idea when removing it. You could always mark the bolt head and the pulley face and retighten to the same position.

several things, the rear main seal is accessable by removing the transmission. if this vehicle is standard transmission, then would recomend new clutch at this time given the amount of labor involved. if automatic, remove drive shafts, transfer case, transmission, and flexplate ....replace rear main. approx 5 hrs.

How to remove and change crank shaft pulley on 2001 mazda 626

You have to partially unscrew the bolt in the center, that's holding the pulley to the crankshaft. Then, you have to use a puller to safely pull, without damaging, the pulley off the crankshaft. When it gets pulled away, off the crankshaft, remove the puller, unbolt the center bolt all the way and take the pulley out.

Where is the crankshaft position sensor?

The crankshaft position sensor is located at right hand side of rear eng block by bell housing. Its easy to see by removing top eng cover look down thru the gap between intake manifold ports. The sensor is on the timing cover by the crankshaft. and is only $20 bucks. And for the crank pulley.The crank pulley on your Altima is on the passenger side. Jack up the car and remove the passenger side tire and inner fenderwell and you will see it.
Remove the (4) allen head bolts that hold the plastic engine cover. Remove the air tube that connects the throttle chamber to air filter box. Pull off the valve cover breather hose with the air tube. Now place a drop light under the two rubber heater hoses (at the firewall on the drivers hand side), shining the light forward towards the back side of the block (below the intake runners). To see the crankshaft sensor and connector, look between the valve cover and the throttle chambers (intake runners) on the drivers side, look straight down toward the ground… look for the sensor with a black wire connector with a green tab on the side, held to the engine block with a gold colored 10mm hex headed bolt. You will need to view the sensor from this position as you are following the steps below to remove and install the crank sensor. check fig:-- 03211f6.jpg

How to replace a water pump on mercedes e320 1997

It is not complicated, depending on what hands-on level of DIY on car. Here are what need to do, so you can estimate how easy or hard when you look through your engine. Drain all the coolant, remove the thermostat housing, remove the fan, belt. Remove the water pump pulley. There are 4 bolts to hold the water pump in place.If you think you can take them out and put them in without removing the AC compressor then you can do it. I did it twice without removing the AC. The pump was fine for the second time, but for leaking seal. At dealer, it is easier to access from the bottom since they have a lifter. But it is doable at home. Have fun if you decide to do it.
