Take one of the spark plugs out and turn the engine till that cillinder reaches full decomprecion and using a funnel put about 1/2 a quart of oil in there put the spark plug back in and turn the engine manually till that cillinder reaches compression when your done remove the spark plug and rotate the pistons a couple of times and the oil will come out this works i just did it on my 05

You need a puller set specifically for harmonic balancer removal,i have found that a steering wheel puller set also works.

SOURCE: BAD HARMONIC BALANCER
To remove the harmonic balancer on my 1992 Pathfinder, I needed to loosen the alternator and power steering belts, remove the cooling fan (4 10 mm nuts), remove the radiator (2 10 mm bolts hold it to the frame, remove top and bottom hose [The drain **** is covered by what appears to be a coolant line], as well as the overflow tube to the reservoir. With a 3/4" impact gun and a 27 mm socket, remove the bolt that retains the alt, ps shieves and the harmonic balancer to the crankshaft. With a large 3 jaw puller, remove the harmonic balancer with the pully sheives as an assembly. I do not recommend attempting the removal without the puller.
To put it back on, you will need a large torque wrench for the crankbolt and a small torque wrench for with a crowsfoot for the fan nuts.

You can try simply wiggling the balancer and see if you get lucky. A few taps with a rubber mallet may convince it to come free. Worst case get the kit. You should not need to remove the radiator. Do make sure that you have the engine blocked so you don't lose your timing mark placement.

There is a panel inside the wheel well that you can take off that gives you perfect access to the harmonic balancer. A special tool is required. i had my dad make one because he has access to whatever he needs at the factory. but you can get them at the dealer. i have no clue how much they cost. I can't see any way of doing it without the special tool. after you get the tool its pretty simple to get off. it takes alot of force to break the bolt loose though. i used the handle off my jack as a cheater bar. hope this helps...
