View Full Version : 200 Tdi

03-24-2007, 12:05 AM
I am changing the timing belt on my 200 Tdi and I have to remove the front pulley on the crankshaft. The nut that holds the pulley on is apparently right hand thread and I have been trying for two days to get it off. I have a impact driver which will apparently put 500 ftlbs of torque to the nut and that will not get it off. I also have a massive 36" pipe wrench and a breaker bar that I have tried. Any one have any suggestions. I have been using PB blaster ever couple of hours too. I also tried heating a little with a cutting torch it and then using the driver or the breaker bar.

got it off, I needed a 3/4" drive, it was the only thing strong enough.
