Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello I will help you with your question,
What do you identify as the idler pulley? Is it the crankshaft pulley?
It is the large bolt on the pulley that is too tight for you to remove?
Do you have air impact tools and a pulley holder?
There is a plastic idler pulley for the belt tensioner, is the pulley metal or plastic?
Are you still with me?
That is unfortunate. You will need to get a new pulley and bolt. You need to grind the head off what is left of the bolt so you can remove what is left of the pulley then use visegrips to remove the last of the bolt.
Let me know how I can help you with this
You asked how to do this easily? At this point there is no easy to it. You need an electric or air powered grinder. A Dremel tool or it's equivalent will work.
