This is a 2001 Honda Civic. This removal DIY will work on most Hondas from the mid 1990s until today. The "Harmonic Balancer" keeps the engine vibrations down. This is important in keeping the motor running smooth and not tearing itself apart. You are dealing with a 19mm bolt, which is called the "Crank Bolt". This holds the harmonic balancer to the crank shaft. It is threaded opposite of the rotation of the engine, so this bastard is tighter than....well. It will take a load of leverage to break it loose. Once broken for the first time, you will hear a very loud pop. It WILL sound like you broke the bolt. Don't worry, unless your an idiot, it cannot be broken so easily. You will need (2) 1/2" breaker bars, several extensions to get this out of the wheel well, a jack stand, and some bricks. Once you get the bolt off, keep a very close eye on where the "Woodruff Key" is, as it will fall when taking off the harmonic balancer. This tiny, nickel sized, piece keeps the balancer and crank shaft spinning together. Don't lose it! Thanks for watching another DIY by Big Dave. PLEASE SUBSCRIBE, LIKE, and COMMENT.
