It is bolted in the bottom of the engine block and runs the hole length of the engine from front to rear. The flywheel bolts to the rear of the crankshaft and the bottom front pulley on the engine bolts to it also.
The timing marks can be found on the front main pulley and on the flywheel. The timing marks will be scattered around the outside of the pulley and the flywheel.
There is a big bolt that is inside of the bottom pulley on the front of the engine, It is the bolt that holds the balancer on . Get a socket that fits that bolt and then turn the engine with that and that will rotate the fly-wheel.
The tension pulley should have a bolt that holds it on, allowing you to replace the unit.
The "bottom" pulley is typically the one that is driven off the crankshaft. It's called the "harmonic balancer".
Remove the old, damaged idler pulley and replace it with a new one.
i am having this same problem and i couldn't figure out why this was because when i inspected the pulley it appeared to be up against the engine, but i just figured out that the pulley is acually two pieces (the pulley and vibration dampener that it sits on) that can separate and cause the pulley to move towards your fan. you will need to replace the pulley/vibration dampener. You will probably need to expose your flywheel and have a friend put something against it to keep the engine from turning over when doing this.
Loosen the bolt in the center of the idler pulley. Then loosen the pulley and remove the belt. There is 3 bolts behind the idler pulley that remove the entire pulley assembly. One is located above the pulley to the top right and the other 2 bolts are below the pulley on either side. It will help to take the wheel off and remove the plastic access panel behind the wheel to the front side of the axle. Then you can drop the pulley out from the bottom and replace the pulley or whole assembly either one at this point. Reverse instructions to reassemble.
sometimes don't have one. bottom pulley 6 o'clock, should be a mark on bottom of oil pump, or a locking pin in the flywheel sets it. cam mark should be about 12 o'clock. new belt has two white lines. timing marks, set the bottom first.
replace the pump
If you're standing at the back of the car, or you're at the pulley end of an uninstalled engine, it's at the flywheel end of the engine on the right side. Number two is on the right side at the pulley end. Number three is at the flywheel end on the left side, and number four is on the left side at the pulley end.
That would be the crankshaft pulley.

It is in the crank case at the bottom of the block. The pulley that drives all the engine accessors is mounted on one end of it and the flywheel or torque converter, depending on automatic or manual, is mounted to the other end.
you need a serpentine belt remover. Its $20 at autozone...The pulley on the bottom left will pull up if you use the tool..its the small pulley on the bottom left...very easy with the right tool....takes three hours without it:] and a lot of cussing...
my husband just did so. the pulley is part of the air condition compressor, so you have to replace the whole part that's connected to the pulley, you can'tjust replace the pulley it self, and going to the junk yard for these partsis very cheap and the way to go.
Take off belt, remove bolt in center of pulley, replace with new pulley (comes with bearing). Reverse to install Take off belt, remove bolt in center of pulley, replace with new pulley (comes with bearing).
The crankshaft pulley is the lowest pulley on the engine. Looking at the engine from the front which is looking at it from the passenger side fender the crank pulley is on the bottom of the engine and has a pulley with a pulley behind it with teeth on it.
