removing VVT unit


Recommended Posts

so unfortunately after buying an is200 a few months back its still sitting on the drive as (unknown to me when purchasing) the headgasket is gone. Its blowing exhaust gas into the coolant which wasnt really visible when purchasing. so ive decided to have a go myself.

I've stipped off everything and now im left with the head to remove. only problem is im not sure how to remove the VVT unit it has a large socket on of which i've found a correct size for it. but when I try to undo it the engine just turns. How do I hold the pulley while removing the nut??

Maybe put the car in first gear then try, have you got the service manual for this job as torque settings are needed.


got the VVT off now mate thanks. i had to take the rocker off and theres a place to hold it with a spanner. just got to find a service bolt now and find out how to lock the timing up
