In my experience with the diesel, it can be a right pig to undo the crank pulley bolt. You will need the 50mm locking tool to do it the 'official' way but I'd instead advise you to remove all spark plugs, fit a decent (6 point) socket to the crank pulley bolt, run a breaker bar from that socket to the floor, then operate the starter motor in bursts until the bolt comes undone... That's what I had to to, after burning out my impact gun and also snapping several socket set extension rods trying to do it the official way.
