Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I plan on using a rope or cable to hold the pulley from rotating while I torque the bolt back in - I'm assuming tightening should go more easily then loosening..
- the bolt has never been removed ( TB never changed)
I do not have the MD990767 tool...( mits pulley tool)
For putting bolt back in:
I planned on passing cable/rope thru the slots in the pulley to immobilize the pulley (when tightening back up) - I don't plan on holding the outside of the pulley....
I've seen some pics of this on line...
I'll look into if a local shop has a tool they can lend...
I was hoping the starter approach would not be that risky if I'm careful.. I've seen a lot of feedback online showing it worked for them - albeit not an outlander specifically....
Have you personal experience with an outlander where the starter approach failed (causing other additional problems) or are you advising against it because it is not the normal shop method ?
I can see your point - it is risky, and I would prefer to use a pulley holder if possible..
Another option I considered for loosening is to bring to a local garage and see if the mechanic would be willing to hit the bolt with an impact gun ......to just break the bolt
