To fully remove the timing cover

Desi 13.02.2012, 03:02
Do you need to pull the crank pully? I know to replace the belt you do, but not sure about the cover it self? Just looking to see if I can get both parts off without pulling the, erm... pulley.

not 100% what engine your talking about. but 90% of motors you have to remove the pulley/balancer to remove the timing chain covers....

It's for a 2.3, has a plastic cover on it but I "think" it may gome off/apart without removal of the pulley, just wanted to be sure & it's too cold to go look.

My brother and i have pulled it off without taking the pulley off, but honestly the pulley slides on and off with the 2.3, so why not just remove it??

I may end up doing that, just really hate to take it all apart. I am not sure if I have to take the belt itself off to take the back piece out or not. I am more worried about removing it & then being off a tooth ot two when I put it back on.
