Re: how do i get at the crank pulley?
noted a few negative comments here...there doesnt seem to be any loss of torque at all on my car, 156 2.0 with same pulley fitted. if anything, i dont know whether it is psycological in any way, but my sele seems to shift that little bit quicker since i fitted mine. response is awesome, nothing negative to say about it.
rancido, make sure you get a shorter belt from the supplier, your original wont fit.
its easy to fit. remove wheel and arch liner, loosen but dont remove torx/ribe bolts, levering the belt tensioner to one side and moving the belt at the same time is the hardest bit of the job, same with getting it back on. remove belt and bolts. the old pulley may be "stuck", just hit it from underneath with a hammer a few times. rub rust off from where the old pulley sat, fit new one, make sure it sits flat, fit bolts and tighten, fit belt, start engine, grin like loony.
