    VW T4 2.4 Diesel AAB Crank Pulley bolt removal

    So thanks to advice the 4 chewed up allen bolts on steering damper now removed.

    Cant now get the centre 27mm AF bolt undone.


    I know it should have been done up to around 330 ft/lbs !

    Haynes doenst say, so can anyone confirm that its is right hand threaded ? ?


    To save the expense of electric/bat impact gun has anyone tried on of these ? are they any good ?
    Ebay item

    361017475182.

    any advice or experience welcome

    cheers

    Unless you can borrow a torque multiplier a torque I would go with a 3/4 drive bar and socket. This looks worth a shot

    3/4in Socket Extension And Bar In Good Condition

    special tool needed to hold the pulley to loosen and tighten (somthing like 120Nm then 1/2 turn) as you say they're effin tight, don't forget to replace the bolt and the diamond coated washer (i kid you not!!) etc or it will work loose and spin the lower pulley causing untold misery

    Cheers Martnet,

    I have ordered the pulley holding tool, should be with me tomorrow, then a 3/4 drive breaker with pipe on it I think will be in order.

    Yep new stretch bolt will be used.


    I assume it is a normal right handed thread ?

    We use Big Bertha for crank bolts, a 1 inch impact gun, even with that we have on times had to apply heat aswel

    Yes it is right hand thread,I have a few VW s 2.4 2.5 , and have used 3/4 drive bar+socket plus the E Bay holding tool,last time I used an 3/4 drive extension bar that I "pivioted" on an axle stand.Not forgetting the 5 Ft. steel pipe.Do not be tempted to remove starter motor and wedge the ring gear !!!
