Gotta use an impact gun. It's on there hella tight and hand tools won't work. Save the old little metal key. You may need to use that one. The new one doesn't come cut to size.

what about putting on the pulley, what does that consist of? putting it in its place and smacking it? lol

DON'T smack it,you will kill the bearings in the sc, put it on and use the bolt to pull it on.

If you took the bolt off the pulley should come right off. If not take a mallet and bang the bottom of the pulley until it loosens up then slide it off. You will have to reuse the bearing and the metal key for the new pulley. You don't need a gear puller or any of those other typ of tools. All you need is some elbow grease. It's not hard to do at all. When you put the new one on tighten it as tight as you can get it. You may have to use some air tools to tighten it. You don't want that thing loose.

im not going to pull it by the bolt, my next guess would be to get a pulley puller. but if i cna use a rubber mallet ( my best friend when taking rusted bolts off the car) then i will do it... but im affraid that if i use the mallet to try to get it off, would i bend anything on it?


if not then im try it tonight when i get home.

Do not hit it at all with anything. Try graphite lube or WD40. I was able to wiggle mine off, and put a new one on.

I decent 3 armed pulley puller will cost you like $18 from your local Pepboys. Just go pick one up. You'll also use when removing the half shafts from the front knuckles if you ever need to.

You have a blown car, your not a been, do things right.
