You can remove the flywheel inspection cover, jam a screwdriver between the case and a flywheel or flexplate tooth, and that will hold the crankshaft enough to get the bolt out. I think the approved method is with a harmonic balancer holder tool, which could perhaps also be improvised with a bar and bolts that thread into holes on the face of the crank pulley.
