i can answer part of that... have someone put pressure hard on the serpentine belt while you turn the bolt.... likewise if you have access to the timing belt tho i would be careful with that so the timing does not shift. after you get the bolt out you will need a puller for it too. carefull as well when you install the new one to match up the groove on the crankshaft with the pully or you'll never have the timing right.

You can remove that center bolt easily with an impact gun. It has normal threads on it. An impact gun will prove to be an affordable tool that you will use again. You can get an electric one from Harbor Freight. They make the job of removing tough bolts much easier. If the engine is in the car, you might not have enough room. You can use a ratchet and if the engine is turning, you can hold the pulley with another tool sold at Harbor Freight called a rubber strap wrench.

Testimonial: "Will report again when the job is done. Thanks for this info: 1) Center bolt is normal thread 2) Tools can be pruchased at Harbor Freight"
You have to find the belt tensioner. Then place a 3/8 th inch pull handle in the square hole on the tensioner body and push it away from the belt. Then slip the belt off of the tensioner pulley. It has a strong spring so make sure your hand is not pinched in something when you release the tensioner after the belt is removed. Some tensioners do not have a hole so you put a socket on the bolt holding the pulley.

There should be two bolts directly opposite each other. Clockwise to tighten and counter-clockwise to loosen (right tighty, etc. if you will).

They do have bolt extractors that you can purchase. Or get a pair of vise grips and clamp it on as tight as you can get it and hit it with a hammer. And you are correct about how to remove the bolt.

Place the crankshaft pulley bolt removal tool over the end of the crankshaft bolt. Tool will hold the pulley in place while you apply torque to the bolt with an impact wrench. Start the air compressor by plugging it in and turn it on. Set the pressure of the compressor on the highest setting. Attach air hose on the air compressor to the air inlet and the locking mechanism using the quick-connect lock on the end of the air compressor hose. Set the impact wrench to turn counterclockwise. Spray the crankshaft bolt with penetrating oil. Make sure you soak the bolt head in oil so that it is easier for the wrench to remove. Secure the socket end of the wrench to the pulley bolt and pull the trigger on the impact wrench. You might need to reapply penetrating oil several times during this process to loosen the bolt up. Eventually, the bolt will come off 215 lbs torque, and simply stated righty tighty, lefty loosy. Hope this will assist you.
