Keep in mind, if the air compressor that you are using only puts out, let's say 60 psi, then you aren't getting the full potential of the impact. It doesn't matter if you have a 50,000 ft. pound impact, if there is not sufficient air.......it's useless. You can put a breaker bar,short extension combo on the bolt, lower the car on the breaker bar and it will break it loose. Do this slowly with a jack.

time to start jacking threads...sorry, but its a somewhat related question....once that bolt comes out, does the crank shaft pulley come off easily or do you need tools to "pull" it off?

The pulley should come off with a little bit of WD40 and some wiggling.

Not sure if I missed something, but is this the pulley for accessories or timing belt? If its for the accessories then there is a how to from focushacks. basically brace your rachet against frame, remove spark plug wires and crank it over.

He mentioned it was a double pulley so I guess it could be both.

Who would have thought to check the "How-to's". Sometimes it's more fun to reinvent the wheel - I know I like to do that, lol.

But what torque is now on that bolt is anyone's guess. And that 1.6 liter engine probably doesn't have a big starter - but then it, isn't my car.

I'm kind of leaning toward the 'jack method', clean and controlled. Just make sure you put the wrench handle on the 'correct' side of the bolt.

Actually I thought we just might be trying to increase the 'hits' on FF !

I have also removed these bolts from other cars using two people, one person to hold the pulley and another person with a short 6 point socket and breaker bar with an extention on the breaker bar. Just had to use short tugs at it to loosen the bolt up but it came out fine in the others as well.
may yet try 2 strong men AGAIN!
