Thanks for the pic. Unfortunately, That didn't work for me. What I had to do was to jam a small pry bar into one of the holes on the pulley and use a 17mm closed end wrench on the pulley bolt and lie on my back and push it up to break the bolt lose. I haven't got the Timing belt re-installed yet.
I had another issue when removing the engine mount. One of those long bolts broke in the mount, It wouldn't come out. I thought I was screwed. When I leaned on the bracket it popped off. I was able to get the middle engine mount off and then I went to my buddies shop where he took out the seized bolt by heating it up.
Then I was off to the stealership to pay $17 for a new bolt, luckily they had them in stock.
Then I got the belt off. All of the writing on the belt was completely gone (at 197,600 km or 122,000 miles). Belt was in good shape. Next was the water pump removal. Another member suggested just grinding away part of the third timing belt cover. Saves on removing the cam pulleys and putting the third timing belt cover off
It Sounded easy enough. But after I did that and smoothed out the rough edge, I started to notice that now part of the cover that is supposed to keep water and dirt out can't do that cause it's gone.
I almost had a $hit fit. Stupid me. So off I run to Canadian tire and buy some "red high temp gasket maker". I don't want water getting into that housing. So I came back home and applied the gasket maker. I used my inspection mirror to see that everything was covered. I will wait until tomorrow to check that out and then continue to reinstall the belt.
I will keep you posted along with my other tips.
