Pulley on my car is damaged

Answers :

A damaged crankshaft pulley, or harmonic balancer, must be replaced. The easiest way to loosen the crank pulley bolt is with an air impact tool. The center bolt is very tight. A long breaker bar, 1/2 inch drive, with a proper socket on the bolt can also work, but you need someway to hold the crankshaft steady while loosening the bolt-you don't want to let the crankshaft turn backward (counter-clockwise). That is bad for the timing belt. You can hold it steady by removing the starter, and wedge the flywheel with a large screwdriver or prybar held against the flywheel's ring gear teeth. Once you have the bolt loose, sometimes a puller is required to get the pulley off the crankshaft, and sometimes it is not so tight and can be pulled off by hand or with a couple of screwdrivers behind and on each side of pulley and work it off that way.
Good luck.
