Is the bolt on the crankshaft pulley reverse thread? (2004 Hyundai Accent 1.6L)

The pulley turns clockwise when starting so it would make sense that clockwise = tighter and counterclockwise = looser.

Yeah i assumed it wasn't but the guy helpin me out was SURE it was reverse threat just cause its soooo tight haha. but yeah this is the second crankshaft pulley bolt ive ever had to remove and i've never had this much trouble on it.

on a 4cyl 2door car too imagine that.

that sounds like a pretty good idea i'm definitely going to try it out.

you may well need some sort of inpact wrench to remove this bolt, they can be very tight. heating up the bolt is not a good idea because you run the risk of damage to the crankshaft oil seal
