    Cant help specifically with your question regarding the pulley removal (apart from you aquiring a dirty great big allen key, lol) but here is an interesting link as to the cause of A140 timing chain failures that may be of help to you........(approx 3rd paragraph down)

    Thanks

    I bought a tool to remove the crank pully and very cheaply to I found the timing marks eventually through google searches only to find mine were always on there lol but with 12 years of dirt all over it wasnt to bad a job in the end I'm hoping when I finish work on friday I should be able to get it back into the car, if anybody does do this job I would recomend replacing the clutch kit 3 bits, starter motor, thermostat, oil filter, charging unit, tensioner and two idle wheels for thee serpantine belt and get the new version of the pully as the old one so I read have a liking of munching the casing off lol I've replaced all these items because if you have one of these cars you will understand its and engine out for most of it a bit costly to start but long term much cheaper and you also have the added cumfy feel you have loads of new parts that should last for years, as with the timing chain get the kit much cheaper and it has everthing to do the job correctly.

    Thanks Panason1c for your contact I was kind of thinking tap tap hello anybody out there lololol ;)

    Regards Kevin.
