there should be some attchments that slot into the end of the removal bolt,,find the one that won't slip inside the crank snout,,you'll need a small mirror to lign the bolts up with the balancer.

there should be 3 holes on the inside of the balancer,,you need to use these.

lign one up at first then the others,screw the bolt in and it should start to slide off,,they can be hard but persevere with it and it'll come off.

ok the only question i have now is i have one attachment that will go on the end of the main bolt but it is bigger than the crank hole... But the bolt that goes in the center of the tool is the exact same size as the bolt i removed from the ballancer im assuming i should use the bolt with no attachment yes?
