Hey all.Been told by local garage that the crank shaft pulley may need replacing as it looks like a rusty colour coming out in the middle of the pully.Is this an easy job to do or is it best to let them do it?Also what would be the best way to go about changing it if its easy?Cheers for any help... :)

If it is the one im thinking you are correct however the bolts are a well known mare and either shear off ir arent put back properly with the end result being valve damage its still advisable to have the oil seal and aux belt and tensioner replaced

Sadly not stef its location and lack of undertray makes it a sod however if you have an undertray it may be as stef said fairly easy just make sure the bolts put in with thread lock theres quite a few posts on other forums of it shearing or coming out after the works done

I have done them on a few cars now, one of them being 20 year old and probably never been off until that point. Never had any trouble so far. That said, good fittings tools and an understanding of the job is a must.

On alot of car, the bolts are torque tightened and then angle tightened so if done correctly there should be no need for thread lock - again I have never had to use it for this application.
