How to Remove a Crankshaft Pulley From 22RE

Save

The 22-RE engine is found in Toyotas and has been in service for many years. The crankshaft retaining bolt is a standard-thread bolt with 215 foot pounds of torque. The bolt is not accessible without removing the radiator and fan assembly. A heavy-duty impact socket should be used with the amount of torque necessary to remove the bolt. A standard socket will usually break with this amount of torque.

Things You'll Need

  • ½-inch drive long handle breaker bar
  • ½-inch drive 19-mm deep well socket
  • ½-inch drive air gun
  • 3/8-inch drive ratchet
  • Set of 3/8-inch drive sockets
  • Set of wrenches
  • Crankshaft pulley locking tool
  • Drain pan
  • Place the drain pan under the radiator and open the petcock to drain the radiator. Remove the upper and lower radiator hoses.

  • Use the 3/8-inch drive ratchet and a 10-mm socket to remove the bolts securing the fan shroud to the radiator support. Use a wrench to remove the 10-mm nuts, securing the fan to the water pump pulley. Pull the fan off and remove the fan and shroud together.

  • Remove the accessory belts using a 3/8-inch drive socket.

  • Install the crankshaft pulley-locking tool. Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt using the long ½-inch drive breaker bar and a 19-mm socket.
