Ford Focus

2 posts in this topic

I have a Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec 5 door hatch with manual box.

I want to remove the crankshaft pulley so to replace the timing belt but the pulley bolt

must be the hardest one I have ever come across.

I have been trying for two days to get this beast out and with no luck.

I have locked the pulley with a locking tool and had somebody hold the brakes on while in gear

but it is not moving.

I have heard that some people hold the pulley bolt with a socket and bar on an axle stand and

then turn the engine over which unlocks the bolt,can anybody tell me if this works ?

Also does the pulley bolt unlock anti-clockwise on these engines.
