Hey
Remove the bolt in the crankshaft then use a puller to remove the rest of the balancer. Sometimes they come off without a puller.

Which direction do i turn the harmonic balancer bolt to remove it on a 1997 honda civic 1.6 liter


Hi:
The harmonic balancer bolt is a normal bolt with right hand threads, so you need to turn it counter-clockwise.
The hardest part of the process is to keep the crankshaft from turning. An impact wrench is the easiest way to go, but if you don't have one, you can use a large strap wrench or chain wrench to hold the harmonic pulley. I use a section of an old belt to protect the pulley.

Harmonic balancer standing still while car is running


Are the belts completely still while running? If not the balancer might actually be spinning fine and just look still because it is spinning fast enough (a friend of mine came to me with the same thing). Looking at the 1990 harmonic balancer the only thing that would seem to cause that is if the bolt wasn't tight enough or somehow went bad, in which case only the bolt would spin. Or the alignment piece (a small metal bit on the back side) had the dual function of traction and broke (don't lose this bit if it's not broke). Or something more serious involving what the bolt threads into. By the way you will need a special tool to remove the harmonic balancer if you plan to do that.

How do i remove the old harmonic balancer on a 1994 honda accord lx


First, look at the direction the balancer turns. Remove the belts. Put the proper sized socket on the balancer bolt and, install a breaker bar into the socket. Make sure the bar is at the side of the engine compartment, where the top of the balancer rotates toward. Next, BUMP THE KEY but DO NOT crank the engine. When the bar contacts the wall or other object, it will stop, allowing the engine to continue and break the bolt loose.

Harmonic balancer problems 96 honda accord


Hello, I dont mean to be the bearer of bad news but I have had three of these cars to do the same exact thing. The harmonic balance loosened up and it wore the end of the crankshaft and the balancer would not tighten up any more. The best option is to replace the crankshaft and balancer. There is not a quick fix fix this. Sorry. Please rate my answer. Thank you.
