Line up the keyslot on the balancer with the key on the crankshaft. Usually just tightening the bolt that keeps it in place is sufficient to intsall it. I am not sure how much pressure you will need to get it back on the crankshaft but it's easier to put one on than to take one off! Be sure and check it after a day or so. Just to make sure you got it back on and it hasnt loosened. I think there is a torque setting but without exact info, firmly installed should do.

Need to pull the harmonic balancer,do i need a puller? and what kind do i need?


In order to remove your harmonic balancer, you will need a harmonic balancer puller. Most harmonic balancer pullers work and look the same. For your specific car it doesn't need a specific one. You can go and pick one up at your local auto parts store. You can either buy it or rent it, depending where you go. Hope this helps.

I got stuck paying dealer for new crank pulley not harmonic balancer as mechanic said. I am driving as little as possible until part comes in and can br put on. Hopefully, I will not damage the crank shaft or throw a belt.

Cooling fan hits the harmonic balancer. Took the fan blades off and the belt still runs off the pulley. Something seams to be miss aligned but I cant see what it is.


Your harmonic balancer is coming apart. The Balancer has rubber ring that eventually wears. I also know that when people try and use WD40 on the tensioner pulley because the bearing is squeeking the WD40 sometimes works its way to the balancer or accidently sprays on the balancer. The WD40 eats away at the rubber. You will need a removal tool to do this. Where you pick the balancer up they should have this.

it looks like this

Timing cover replacement


A standard harmonic balancer puller will work. Remove the balancer bolt which is 15/16. Be sure that the large washer comes off as well. If you don't see the washer when you remove the balancer bolt, use a curved pick or something to remove it from the inside of the balancer. Then you can get the timing cover off.
