Question about 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX
You'll have to remove the drive belt. Remove the lower pulley and large bolt in the center of the balancer. If the bolt is on really tight, remove a spark plug, move the piston to the bottom of the cylinder by turning the engine, stuff a bunch of rope in the spark plug hole, as much as you can. Now turn the engine counter-clockwise and the center bolt will break loose for you. Once the bolt has broken loose, rotate the engine clockwise again just enough to remove the rope. Remove the balancer bolt and get a balancer removal tool and pull the balancer off.
