156 2.0 TS Crank pulley bolt removal issue

I have a 2.0 156 TS injection.

I am trying to replace the cam belt, I have got to the crank pulley.

There is a cover behind the crank pulley, It seems that I need to take the crank pulley off to get the timing belt off.

There is 4 ribe bolts with a larger bolt in the center, I have no sockets that fit this, as the bolt is inset into the pulley wheel with little a small gap around. All of my sockets are all too thick walled to fit.

Do I need to buy a special tool to remove this bolt that will fit and also how can I lock the crank to get leverage on this bolt?

In short, what do I need and how do I remove the crank pulley. And what size bolt is it?

Thanks in advance for assistance.

You take the pulley off by removing the 4 Ribe bolts not the centre bolt.

You can then take the lower cover off and remove the balance belt pulley ( 2 Ribes ) and the balance belt.

If you dont have Ribe sockets I think you really need to get them before going further
