Exclamation Front crank seal leak 3.0

Hi I needed some help for doing my front crank seal. I don't have a harmonic balancer puller and was wondering if there are any other ways to get the pully off... And do I need to pull my radiator?

No good ways. You should be able to "rent" a puller from the parts store.

pulling the radiator will give yourself more clearance to get an impact gun on the main pulley bolts. Otherwise, you could leave it in place. All depends on how much you want to fight with it.

Go to your parts store and rent one. Very easy that way.

Also, I didn't pull my radiator and was fine but it certainly wouldn't hurt.

Might as well replace the water pump while it's already off to avoid having to go through the pain of taking off again down the road.
