Hi everyone,

 

I need some advice on how to remove the crankshaft pulley bolt because I need to replace the water pump. It is so freaking tight, I got a mobile mechanic to come and the impact gun did nothing. He used a breaker bar with a really long extension pipe and it broke the crank pulley holder and the socket. He told me the only option is to cut the bolt or drill a hole. I am not convince how the bolt will come out even after cutting the head off. 

 

I can't drive the car to a mechanic because coolant is pissing out and the car overheat. The nearest mechanic is more than 7 km so I don't think it will make it that far without overheating.

 

This is driving me insane.

can try a breaker bar against a frame rail and hit the starter. just check the rotation direction first first.

 

ive never had one a rattle gun couldn't undo but.

I have tried the starter method and no good. Maybe I just have to take it to the mechanic, probably bring heaps of water and just filling up water as I go. 6-7 km is not too far i guess.

Borrow a mate's ute and hire a car trailer for $50, better than risking grenading the whole engine (if it isn't already)

Stick it on the back of a tow truck and take it to a mechanic you trust.

Normally the bolt isnt welded on that tight but the last guy who touched your car could have used thread lock.

Either way your going to need a workshop full of the right tools to get this one done properly.

This is the wonderful world of cars :P



Also, thanks heaps for all the replies. I'm fast learning that this may be the friendliest forum on the internet.
