Well I have been struggling to get my front pulley off. 3ft breaker bar and 6ft scaffold pole wouldn't budge it.

I don't think the full problem is how tight this nut is more to do with the rubber donuts in the propshaft not locking things solid.

Well today I bought one of the following for less than £70 and must admit that I was very sceptical (even though I do like power tools) but the nut was off in less than 3 seconds. I was astonished!

NOTE: doing it this way the radiator does have to be removed for access.

Nice one - I like power tools too - its the "impact" that does it - cant replicate that by hand even with a hammer
