To remove the sprockets or pulleys on all engines, first follow the timing chain or belt removal procedures, then follow below.

  1. Remove the retaining bolt(s) for the drive sprocket you wish to remove. Do not use the timing chain or belt as a means of holding the sprocket; use a spanner that is made for the job.
  2.  
  3. Gently pry the sprocket or pulley off the shaft. If the sprocket or pulley is stubborn, use a gear puller. Never hammer on the sprocket or the camshaft!
  4.  
  5. Remove the sprocket or pulley and be careful not to lose the key if equipped.
