Harmonic Balancer puller. can buy, or can use Auto Zone's tool loaner deal, where you pay for it, use it, then bring it back for a refund. I advise using an impact wrench on that crank bolt. if you use a breaker bar, you may move the crankshaft, and lose you timing match-up - it is on there tight. It needs to be re-torqued to the specified value, too. Make sure your torque wrench will reach the bolt first.
i found it just as easy to remove the bolt then either use a pry bar behind it or just pull with my hand and tap the flat edge gently but aggresivly with a hammer. it will come off...
You will need special tools like: harmonic balancer puller, and impact wrench.
The flywheel has to be held in place by a holding tool, Remove the mounting bolt, then use a balancer remover to pull the harmonic balancer.

take the serpentine belt off and then take the crank pulley off the balancer and then you will need a puller to get the balancer off the crank.
Remove the belt. Remove the bolt that attaches the harmonic balancer. Rent or purchase a harmonic balancer puller. Follow the Instructions with the puller and remove the old balancer. Install the new balancer making sure to line up the keyway, a little oil helps. Put the retaining bolt back in and tighten to manufacture specs.
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 recommended mileage to change a timing belt on a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder is 100,000 miles. The belt may need replaced before this.
