    well i finally got a chance to get under my car and take a look at my balancer. sure enough, it has come apart. just wondering if somebody could give me some instructions on how to replace it? like what has to be removed and so on. thanks in advance!

    quite simple. Loosen the belt tensioner, pull the belt off, unbolt the balancer, replace it, belt back on. The end.

    it makes it easier if you do remove the fan and overflow tank. Also, id put a peice of cardboard in front of the radiator just to make sure if you do hit it with a wrench that you do not damage it.

    i didnt remove my fan when mine spun over. it isnt necessary, although it makes things way easier. its a simple job, you are making more out of it than what it is. make sure you mark the pulley and balancer before removing the four bolts so they can be put back in the same relative position
