hi all,

this is aimed at the people that have changed thier own cambelt - did u need to make a tool to hold the crankshaft pulley when loosening /tightening or even have to remove it for the belt change???

same goes for the radiator - it is a must to remove it - car isnt here so cant look at the moment.

I haven't done mine yet but I don't see why you would need to remove the crank pulley? Surely just loosen off the tensioner and slip the belt off. Wouldnt have thought it necessary to remove the radiator either to be honest, looks like theres just enough room to work.

HI if your car is manual just put the car in gear and have someone put there foot hard on the brake then undo the nut i got my bottom pulley of by tapping it with a soft face hammer dont try this with any other type hammer dont hit the pulley to hard as you will break it as it made of cast metal and will break easily or buy the correct puller and no the rad does not have to come out but you will have to take the cooling fans out the way hope this helps

Hi,

Just found your post, I'm about to try the same.

Can you give me more details of this tool?

Anyone got a photo of the crank pulley?
