Hi,
I have 2 questions the bolt in the front of the crankshaft which direction does this undo and what's the best way to lock the crankshaft while undoing it? It's a 2004 v6 with auto box.
Regards Peter

It is a metric bolt that comes off Counter Clockwise. Here is a picture of a tool I made to hold it. Some people jam the flywheel.

I just read you are from down under. I don't know if our CCW is your CW. Someone that knows could lend their .02 worth.

Ha Ha clocks don't change.
However our bathwater runs clockwise down the drain.
The big difference is that your DS is our PS when describing location of components.
My $0.02 AUD (which is probably worth $0.023 over there) :lol:

I knew about the water draining and that is what triggered my thought on CCW vs CW. Thanks. Good to know.
