Harmonic Balancer

Can't get my harmonic balancer off. The retaining bolt looks like it can be pulled off because it has a channel around it and a hole in the center, but then some advise it should be unscrewed in a clockwise direction, if so where do I get access to the flywheel to insert a scewdriver to keep it from turning. Impact wrench isn't strong enough to remove this bolt.

Re: Harmonic Balancer

You could use a couple of bolts in the holes where the puller mounts and a bar between them. If you have the 4v engine, it is right hand thread. Why are you taking it off? Is the seal leaking?
It helps to post the year and engine you have. I read your post in the introduction forum so I know that it's a 99 Taurus.

Yep its a 99 Taurus, the HB, a two piece part, is spinning freely so the belt does'nt turn at all. The balancer rest on a bracket which is bolted to the engine with three bolts. There is no thru holes in the balancer as is with other pulleys. This is a 3.0 24V engine.
