Having problems with your 2009 Jaguar XF ?
How can I install a new Crankshaft Pulley on a 2009 Jaguar XF.
I install a new Pulley and crankshaft is not turning 360 degrees.
Didn't mark or lock the old pulley or crankshaft.
The crankshaft pulley powers the belts that work the alternator, the coolant pump, the power steering pump and the air conditioning system. It's attached to a thick rubber disc sandwiched between two metal drive rings, mounted on the end of the crankshaft. The rubber disc removes vibrations from the crankshaft that would be passed on to the crankshaft pulley. It is rarely possible to install a new crankshaft pulley with the engine in the vehicle since the work that must be done requires more room that most engine compartment afford.
Move the tensioner pulley aside to loosen the belts so they can be removed. Loosen the large nut holding the old pulley in place. This nut is often tightened beyond the strength of one man to loosen it. Use a large wrench and a six-foot steel pipe to add leverage or an impact wrench. Remove the old pulley. Once the nut is removed, the old pulley will usually slide off. Check the shaft key and key slot for damage or wear. Replace, if necessary. Mount the new pulley. Torque the large nut to the factory specifications.
Slide the belts back into place. Adjust the tensioner pulley to remove most of the slack.
