digging deep into my EA service memory (about 2 years ago) the idle pulley has a lock nut you need to loosen off first.

How true is that! Best tool I ever bought!

Yeah a lock nut is correct. I had mine replaced a while ago, the bearing seized. There is a smaller locknut infront of a bigger nut that holds the pulley on.

A rattle gun is a air impact wrench, what you see a tyre fitter use to remove and refit your tyres
