Default SER2 Pulley swap vs. SER1 Pulley swap

DIZZZAMMN the SER2 pulley swap is like 15 times more work than the SER1!!!
Not including having to remove the coolant res. and the fuse box (have to remove coolant res in Bonne anyway) even with the special pulley puller tool this is one biznatch of a project. Took me an hour to get the old pulley off....thats the easy part....JEEZ trying to press the new one on has my arms turning to jello.

Sorry im just trying to vent..........hopefully once installed the Buicks front tires will never be the same!

alexGTP of the ILGPC had my old one off and new hub on within 10 minutes. Man you're slow.

Seriously though, yes its a little tougher by what I hear.

my first SER2 pulley swap.....instructions I had were worthless so I had to figure the tool out and do it freehand......but getting the old off was the breeze part.......putting the new back on is like pulling hair out of my own head and then pouring salt on the wound!!!
SER1 was like slide it on and bolt it down....jeez my Bonne'* so much easier to work on!
