Check this.I'm in the middle of a water pump/timing belt change and I would like to inspect and possibly replace the camshaft seals. Is there a good way to hold the pulleys so the bolt can be loosened?
From what I could tell, that won't work on ours as the cam gears do not extend above the head. I bought one of these: Pulley Spinning Tool but ended up breaking the cam pulley as it didn't fit quite right:nothappy:. Now I need a new pulley. It looks like one of these is the correct solution to hold the gear:Check this.

"You just stick a ratchet extension through the spokes of the cam gear and then toruqe the bolt off. Just cover the end of the extension with a towel or rag so it doesn't mark up the cylinder head."
"There is a cover behind the gears that has 2 - 12mm bolts. You can place a socket and ratchet to hold it still while you muscle the bolt loose. I used a 18" - 1/2 - breaker."
