I'm trying to remove a harmonic balancer. I've got to the point of taking it off. The pulley remover is placed. But the bolt when completely down only turns the balancer. How to fix please


Are you using a gear puller or an actual harmonic bal. puller? You can use air tools(carefully), or to hold the balancer/pulley still, use a chain wrench with an old belt wrapped around to prevent damage. I would not recommend a 2 or 3 jaw type gear puller.

Break bolt lose on harmonic balancer keep spinning


Hello. If you have a impact gun it will spin off , if not you can use a pair of vise grips and a leather glove. Put the glove around the pully and pinch it with the vise grips. This will help you keep from bending or putting nicking up the pully. Then just turn the bolt until the vise grips hit the side of the housing and you should be able to break it lose.

Need to replace harmonic balancer in 99 crv is there anything else I should replace at the same time?


If you're changing the balance, you may want to install new drive belts since the belts have to be removed to do the replacement of the balance. Also, check the key way to make sure it is not worn irregularly on the crankshaft.

1 want to pull off a harmonic balancer off a oldsmoble cutlass cieras without jumping out or time


if your just pulling it off to change the front seal. all you need to do is remove the belts off of the accs. then remove the bolts out of the balancer and use a puller to remove it. it will stay in time. the timing gear has a key on the crank to hold it in postion.

How do you replace the harmonic balancer pulley on the 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


The short answer to your question is:

1. Raise the car on the passenger side and remove the front wheel.
2. Remove the belts on the harmonic balancer.
3. Remove the retaining bolt.
4. With a puller, jack the harmonic balancer off of the crank shaft. You can rent a puller at your local auto parts store. It is easiest to access the harmonic balancer through the fender, hence the need to remove the wheel.
5. You should also consider replacing the seal around the harmonic balancer to minimize the possibility of a leak later.
6. Install the new harmonic balancer and tighten the retaining bolt to the specified torque (I don't know this off the top of my head).
7. Replace the belts and wheel, and voila...mission accomplished.

This was a short answer to your question. You may wish to consult a repair manual for illustrations, torque specifications, additional instructions, etc. This job is not for the faint of heart. Good luck!

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.
