    Default Any mechanics online?

    I'm trying to change a cambelt on a citreon berlingo, & i'm having trouble releasing the crankshaft pully bolt.
    I've tried all my might and it wont budge.. anybody on any suggestions?
    I was toying with the idea of applying heat, would this be a bad idea?

    cheers,

    I've seen people put a socket or spanner on the nut,turn the engine so the end of the spanner or nut bar is against the chassis and then give the engine a quick turn over on the key - power from the starter is usually enough to budge it

    The obvious one is an airgun.It will be r/h thread.

    You could try putting it in gear(4th) have someone hold the footbrake on hard and use a pull bar, this usually works if you don't have access to an airgun.

    r/h thread thats good... i was going the right way then.

    I was using a socket set with a extention bar, managed to snap the extention bar, and take off all my knuckes on the floor....
