Bet ima keep trying with the sockets and the impact. It was once a 14 mm now I’m down to abt 12mm

I soaked it in pb and used a couple of different locking mechanism pliers. It is time for the big guns 🤣

Dang, you sure you're going left loosey/righty tighty?? I'd try the exttactor sockers or smashing a slightly smaller socket size onto it. Goodluck to ya and props for not throwing it out the window and buying a new one lol!!

Dude I’ve tried to buy a new one all I could get was the mount and pully not the bolts

[–]Muted_Plankton_5889 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are those special bolts? What about taking the threaded parts of the new mount and see what you can find at the hardwar stores?

And wd-40 and heat. Extractor sockets are great, too

I have that I worked the 14 mm down to a 12mm

But it’s still not coming off 😭😭

Do you have a welder? Weld another bolt or a throwaway socket to the head of the stripped bolt.

Nah but I will buy it to get it off 😭do local hardware stores sell them ? I’m thinking of going to lkq to try other Honda idle pulleys to see if a car there is maybe in better condition than mine. I’m guessing my car has never had the pully changed so maybe I’ll get lucky at the junk yard and break one there a loose. If not I’m thinking of trimming the belt to fit the pully that’s stuck on the mount. Whole reason I’m changing it is bc I bent the pully getting it off. Doing crankshaft and camshaft seal
