no the cover does not need to be removed just unbolt the 5 bolts holding it to the timing belt sproket the bolts have a 8 mm head
Harmonic balancer replace
how to replace harmonic balancer on a 2000 infiniti i30
how to replace harmonic balancer 3.4 v6 2001 grand am gt?
The harmonic balancer must be removed to change the sensor because the crank position triggering rings on the back of the balancer are entwined with the pick-up, Sorry
The harmonic balancers function is to reduce vibration between the engine and the crankshaft. To replace the harmonic balancer requires a specific tool available at an auto parts store. Loosen the crank pulley via 4 bolts to access the balancer. Using the tool remove the harmonic balancer from the crankshaft.
It is located behind the crankshaft harmonic balancer pulley on the bottom front of the engine. The right lower splash shield and harmonic balancer pulley must be removed to replace it.
no it;s behind the harmonic balancer take off passenger right front tire and you can get at it. you will need a wheel puller to pull the harmonic balancer off
It shouldn't make noise. If it does, replace it!
I would contact the local parts store and replace the harmonic balancer if you think it is bad. a bad balancer can cause failure in the crankshaft bearings because of the shake.
Assuming that it is a 3.1 V6, as most of them are, there is no cam sensor. Only a crankshaft sensor. It is located behind the harmonic balancer. To replace it the balancer has to be removed.
Am unsure of what you are asking. The harmonic balancer is a lifetime part of the engine and does not need replacement based on a time or mileage requirement.
you don't -Buy a new one
You dont repair it...you have to replace it.
There is not much you can do with a bad balancer other than replace it with a new one.
The crank sensor is located behind the Harmonic balancer. Try not to break the rubber within the Harmonic balancer when removing or on the safe side replace both the Crank sensor and the Harmonic balancer ( the big pulley on the bottom - most part of the engine.)
Replace the Harmonic balancer
There is a bolt in the center of it, 5/8ths inch. Remove that, then the three 9/16ths bolts in a triangle pattern, which removes the pulley. Then, you will need a harmonic balancer puller, as they are pressed on.
sounds like the rubber damper is worn on the harmonic balancer. if this is the case you will have to replace the harmonic balancer.
at the front of the engine,next to the harmonic balancer
first remove serpintine? fan belt then remove large bolt in middle of harmonic balance. this bolt usually has left hand thread next with a harmonic pulley ,puller, remove harmonic balancer.when removing this, there is a key in the balancer and shaft if a new key did not come with new balancer,make sure not to loose the old one install new balancer with key.use the bolt to pull balancer up tight where it needs to be and use proper torque on bolt
Behind the harmonic balancer. You will need to remove the right front tire, remove the access panel to the engine (through the wheel well), remove engine belt, remove harmonic balancer & pulley with a puller. Remove & replace crank sensor, align sensor with an alignment tool, replace balancer with an installer tool.. BE VERY careful with the balancer, the backside of it has a hall effect style blades. bending these blades will junk the balancer.
Its under the harmonic balancer cover. You can see the wiring on the right (front) side of the cover. Pull the harmonic balancer to replace it, make sure you line-up the teeth right in the magnetic pick-up.
you buy a pulley grabber kit, make sure you get one large enough to fit over the harmonic balance. but be careful not to damage it, harmonic balances are expensive to replace.
The balancer has a piece of rubber that holds it together, The balancer is made of two pieces with rubber in the middle, and the rubber is coming apart. REPLACE BALANCER. The Pulley that's bolted on the balancer may be bent or not on stright and flush on the balancer, That would make the balancer look like its wobbleing too.
