simple answer, use a rattle gun, a quick trip to the local mechanic/tyre fitter etc should get it of

unless you can jam the pulley with a screwdriver, then you will need a rattlegun, and prolly a 15/16 socket, if it is a bosch alt.

Went down to FTG auto salvage today, n tried a rattle gun.. lol

Dunno what bit was used, but its wasnt budging, seems to be chipping the nut more than anything - still not off, i almost give up.

Use a flank drive socket on it if you have already started to wear the corners off... they grip on the flat surfaces of the bolt / nut instead of the corners.

or use a single hex socket, a lot harder to round the corners of the nut.
