Wrench on harmonic balance puller should be against the ground and to the
right. You can adjust the jack. Then blip the key/starter to loosen 19mm
bolt on balancer. Don't pry the balancer off. Use a horizontal puller with
8.8 x 1.25 x 50mm bolts. Sockets needed 19mm,17mm, 14mm, 12mm, 10mm. Tie
the hood to a side view mirror to get the prop rod out of the way. Loosen
front bolt on alternator before adjusting side bolt (tension setter).
Write on your Alt and AC belts after taking them out so you don't mix them

I am very suprised this video is not on YouTube. This is the MOST famous
Toyota MR2 V6 swap. Its the winner of the Sport Compact Car Ultimate
Street Car Challenge (2005 I think). Please note, this is not my car, and
I did not have anything to do with it. I just like the video, and I would
be doing a V6 if I wasn't already doing a V8. Its "only" a Camry V6
pushing 500hp! For more info on V6 swaps into MR2's, see Jeff Hartman's

1991 Toyota MR2: Ball Joint Replacement
If your MR2 is more than 100K miles old, your ball joints could probably
use a replacement. My MR2 had about 137K miles at the time of this video.
After replacing the ball joints, I realized how much better the car feels
with new ball joints. This is a recommended repair for freshening up your
Anyways, here is a video demonstrating some of the steps of removing and
replacing the ball joints on a 2nd generation Toyota MR2. In the video, I
am replacing the front ball joint, but these steps are very similar to what
needs to be done in the rear.
Tools used for this repair:
1) Metric Sockets
2) Breaker bar
3) Pitman Arm Puller (available for sale/rental at Autozone part 27022)
4) PB Blaster (for loosening up any rust)
If there are any errors, advice, or questions for me, please let me know.
This was the first time I replaced the ball joints but it was not a
terrible repair and is possible alone. If you have breaker bar finesse, it
is definitely doable!
