Question harmonic balancer

I have a 1994 Ford Tempo and am having a problem with it and I hope someone can help me. When my car is in reverse, drive, 1st or 2nd gear there is a rattling/clicking noise coming from the right side of the engine. When driving it, you hear the noise continuously. I had it looked at by a friend and he said it is the harmonic balancer. Is this easy to change?? I'd appreciate any info.

Re: harmonic balancer

are you having problems with your belts? are they shredding?

Unfortunately, it's not a job you want to do yourself. Ford engineers, in their wisdom, put the engine about an inch away from the car's frame. And the harmonic balancer is 2-inches deep. So you have to disconnect the motor mounts and move the engine in order to change it. It'll cost you a couple of hundred bucks to have someone else do it for you, but it's one of those jobs where it's well worth it. Unless you don't really mind losing your knuckles.
