You will pay ~$100 from auto parts stores for a remanufactured one

As for removing it - crack the bolt in the center and back it out 1/2 way. Put a pulley remover on it and pullit up to the bolt, then back the bolt out a little further and repeat until the balancer comes off.

Matti, need a hand, Me and Renold did mine recently, all we had to do was remove the thermos, was plenty of room. Also, makes it a s**t load easier if you have access to a rattle gun
