The best way is with a high power impact gun if you can fit one in there. If you can't here's another trick but you have to be very careful.

Get a real long breaker bar and a 6 point socket to fit the bolt. Insert the breaker bar so the handle is on the ground on the right side of the car, your left facing it. Position it so it will come up and hit the frame without damaging anything else. Now go bump the starter. This is going to move with great force so be really careful.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

 If you come across a balancer with no bolt then it is pressed on . Parts houses and Harbor Freight sell a kit that makes R&R a breeze. Dont try to hammer it back on . Chances are that you will damage it or not get it fully o.n
