I HAVE 1993 TOYOTA COROLLA DX 71,000 MILES 1.8 ENGINE AND WANT TO REPLACE THE TIMING BELT. HOW DO I REMOVE THE CRANKSHAFT PULLEY, HOW DO I LOOSEN BOLT WITH OUT REMOVING STARTER AND JAMMING THE FLYWHEEL?
ANY TIPS? THANKS, JEFF
GREAT SITE THANKS TO ALL!
Try to use a breaker bar with a long handle and a socket, turn it by hand CCW until get against the floor or the frame Disconnect the coil ( to prevent the engine to start) and crank the engine a little bit until the bolt brake loose (get help to be on the safe side!).
And to remove the pulley you probably need an harmonic balancer puller.
Good Luck !

Rent an electrical impact wrench to get the pulley bolt out.
If the pulley does not have threaded holes in it to thread a puller in, it most likely just pulls off after the bolt is removed.
If you intend to work on the car yourself, a Haynes manual will pay for itself in no time. You can get one at Advance Auto and many other places for $16.00.
