If you're talking about the pulley I'm thinking about then you're talking about the crankshaft pulley, there is one bolt in the center of it that you have to remove and it is easily the hardest bolt on the entire car to get off. BIG impact gun.... (P.S. It's not reverse threaded it's just a PITA)

From what I've read from others experience they recommend going to some big commercial place on even honda themselves with the covers off and ask them to losen it. You can tighten it again but not as hard then drive back and finish up. I asked peple at Express oil change and they said they'd do mine for free.

You can't do the timing belt without removing that pulley.

If you can figure out some way to lock the crankshaft so it won't spin, then use a wrench with a long LONG handle.
