Cambelt Pulley Bolt Stuck

Recommended Posts

Took car in for cambelt replacement this morning, had a call this afternoon saying he couldn't get pulley bolt off, but would keep trying.

He called back again just before 5 saying it won't budge, even tried a mobile coach wheel service chap, with a 500L compressor, and still couldn't budge it. He's tried all sorts and nothing works, he says he can try more drastic measures but he is worried he might sheer the bolt, or cause other damage.

On the plus side he reckons the belt is ok, but as it stands, it would need to go to perhaps Lexus and if they are prepared to take all responsibility for any damage they may cause trying to fix it, something I may consider, otherwise I might run it a few months then trade it in I think.

he says he can do that, but if something breaks, its at my expense not his. He says as he has tried so many things he is worried the bolt will simply sheer off. I might try lexus and see if they would be liable if they broke it.
