Crankshaft pulley tool

Eventually located my oil leak to the above pulley seal.
Do I need the tool to get the pulley off the car or is there another way. If not does anyone where I can get the right tool from please.

Thanks in advance
Lee

Yes, the pulley has to come off to replace the seal. The pulley bolt can be really tight!

There is a 50mm locking tool available to hold the pulley/engine from turning while the bolt is undone, but even this didn't work for me... I had to run a breaker bar from the socket to the floor and then operate the starter to get the bolt undone (mine is a diesel and I had the injectors out, fortunately).

If you're anywhere near Ludlow I can lend you my Laser locking tool and a 6-point 19mm socket.

I'm in the north east mate. Would there be any chance of posting it too me or is it not worth the risk. I am getting a garage to do it but they do not have the tool and they would rather do it using the tool if they or myself can get one.

PM replied to.

For info (of others) my locking tool is a Laser 3760 which fits the diesel and I'm fairly certain it also fits the K-series. But you can probably lock the engine much easier on a petrol (in the absense of a DMF) by simply putting it in gear and applying the footbrake.

Buying the laser tool would be so much cheaper!

You'd still need the 19mm socket though, whether Honda tool or Laser. Best if this is a 6-point type, given the torque needed.
