Take car to get crank pulley bolt pre-loosened. A local gas station garage should be able to handle this.
Jack up car, place on jackstands
Take off driver side wheel
Set motor at TDC (your haynes manual will tell you how)
Remove pre-loosened crank pulley bolt.
Losen alternator slider, slide alternator toward block
Take off alternator belt
Take off crank pulley (sometimes it sticks, tap it with a hammer)
Take off lower timing belt cover (bunch of 10mm bolts)
Take off Valve cover (unnecessary if upper timing belt cover is already off)
Remove upper timing belt cover bolts
Take off upper timing belt cover
Put valve cover back on (rest it there) to prevent crap from getting in
Loosen belt tensioner.
Get your jack
Place jack under oil pan with a block of wood on top of it to prevent damaging the pan
Put a light pressure on the oil pan.
Take off driver side motor mount (but not the part attached to the car, the two bolts that hold the mount to the engine)
Tilt motor slightly by lowering jack
Slide Timing belt off (be carefull not to turn the cam or the crank while doing this)
Installation is the reverse of removal.
I've seen MANY of these that don't come out with an impact gun.ludesrv said:IF you have access to an air impact, or even an electric impact, then use it to remove it. This is probably the easiest/best ways of doing it, but what Tom said works just as good if all you have is hand tools.
You must be using too many extensions or something. Extensions act like a spring and absorb the impact effect. You want to keep the socket as close to the anvil as possible:downest said:I've seen MANY of these that don't come out with an impact gun.
Just to add to what he said above, insert large rod(junk heman screwdriver) etc. into alternator bracket, then pry your rod against that,lol that sounds funny.downest said:Everyone loves the crank pulley...
There are a lot of ways to hold the crank pulley while you do this, I prefer to hold the pulley itself to avoid the slack in the rest of the rotating assembly. Use a couple of bolts through the holes in the pulley, they won't thread, but just use some nice quality bolts stuck in there. Now use a steel bar of some sort wedged between the bolts and something else, the ground or axle work well, so that when the pulley turns, the bar stops it from moving. Use a 1/2" ratchet or breaker bar with a 6-point 17mm socket on the pulley bolt, and a couple of extensions to get it clear of the fender. Rest the extension on a jack stand so it remains straight, and put the biggest pipe you can find over your breaker bar. I like to use the handle of a floor jack for this. Now take up the slack, and then put all your weight on it, it should come loose.
Nah... you need one of these:tubafreak said:This one should probably be big enough.
