    Default How to remove the crankshaft pulley.

    As title says. Got a like clicking rattle sound. Took the aux belt off and no noise. Thought it was the belt tensioner pulley so replaced this and still there. Sounds like it's coming from the crankshaft pulley. I know it has 4 Torq bolts and one big bolt in the middle. Do I need to undo all of them to get this off ??

    only the 4 smaller bolts. (then you'll probably need to tap/lever it off). the large one is for the crank itself, leave that one alone..

    Cheers guys. I did take the 4 bolts out but didn't give it a tap. There is no play in the pulley but not sure what else it can be causing this noise

    The belt itself. Try a Gates belt if replacing tensioner and pulley still give you a squeal but test the belt first by spraying it with water and see if that removes the squeak.

    Well I've just changed the crankshaft pulley and noise still there. Alternator pulley don't have no play in it but it must be that. So will put a new pulley on it. Just a shame I have to take it off to do the job

    Just sprayed the belt with water and the noise has gone. As soon as I rev the car and the heat takes the water away it comes back so maybe it's a new belt needed

    Mine did the same.

    Turned out to be the lower guide which is a common one to make a noise
