    breaker bar, cheater pipe and floor jack. place the breaker bar (cheater pipe if needed) so it lays across the floor jack and use the floor jack to turn the wrench.

    I've also seen it done by wedging the breaker bar on something in the engine bay and cranking the engine - let the engine force do it. I've never tried this method

    I haven't done one on a JK, but it's tricky to remove the bolt if your impact isn't powerful enough. If you try a breaker bar, the engine will just keep turning over. There are tools to hold the flywheel at the back, but fitting it in there with engine in the vehicle can be tricky.

    I've used the breaker bar against the frame of something stout and " TAPPED " the key. Please do yourself a favor if you go this route and unhook the coil. It doesn't take much to break the bolt loose go with this method.

    Thanks for all the advice guys. I tried to brace a breaker bar and tapped the key but didn't break it. I'm just going to take it to a shop and let them finish it up.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
