Are you having problems removing the pully or the pully bolt? Is the engine in the car?

It just slides onto the crank. I'm assuming you have the bolt out?

Over time, the crank and pulley kind of fuse together and then you have to use a 2 bolt puller to remove it. You can borrow these pullers from just about any major part store - they're only about $20, so I just bought one.

Is the engine in the car? It's REALLY easy with the engine in the car. If the engine is out of the car, you have to find a way to keep the crank from turning while you loosen the bolt.

also, don't forget to remove the flywheel inspection cover and stick something in the teeth to keep the crank from turning.

Some folks with out an impact gun have used the starter to get the bolt off. Put the wrench on the bolt, and turn it to hit the ground/floor when you start the motor.

i had the engine on a stand, and i used a socketed belt attachment for my wrench on it to slip over the pulley.

I did mine with just a harmonic balancer puller from autozone and some good ole elbow grease. If it has been on for a while it will be harder and you will probably have to get a impact gun.
