Thanks for using Just Answer.
Ok went out and worked on the car, if you recall my daughter's boy friend had started it, there is one bolt left on - its backed against the pulley for the power steering, currently has a wrench stuck on it...................so I pulled the altenator to take a look but I can't see how to get to the bolt.
Some sites had said I might have to jack up the engine, however if the problem is the power steering res. won't that rise with the engine?
The ps res is tucked in pretty well, not even sure how to get that out. Also he chipped the pully for the tensioner, I'm assuming I can buy another and replace easy enough?
Feel bad for the kid as he tried fairly hard but looks like it wasn't going smoothly, sadly I have to fix and wasn't the one taking apart.
So any ideas would be great.
Hi, Sorry for the delay.
You will need to rent a pulley puller and remove the pulley in order to get that bolt out. Its a clam type puller (see below) and an installer. Most parts stores will have one to rent and Autozone will even loan you one for free.
You can also buy that tensioner there as well. Sorry to hear he is having trouble but it sure was a nice thought.
Best of luck my friend!
