Im trying to take off the ac compressor drivebelt. I try to loosen the bolt from the adjutable idler pulley, and I just cant seem to get it to budge "Im turning it to the right" Ive tried spraying wd40 on it, but it doesnt seem to make a differance. Does anyone have any suggestions to loosening the bolt, or a different approach to removing the belt?



Thanks ;)

You need air tools.

im looking into getting some air tools since ive just about convinced my dad to let me do a swap. an impact wrench and an air ratchet is what i was thinking. anyone have any suggestions as far as brands and good compressors?
 
This is for eyesonlybob, since my dumbass doesn't know how to include your questions on this page.
If you don't want to spend an arm and a leg on Snap-ons or Matco, there's a brand call IR (Ingersoll Rand) that makes good air tools. As for your air compressor, any 2-3 HP with about 10gal. reserve would do you. Maybe a Craftsman or a CP for personal use. If you need more advice on tools, let me know I've got some experience on what you need. Hope this helps.
