    My 2001 v6 XTerra's Harmonic Balancer is soon to be toast. If possible I want to replace it myself, I've been quoted around $500 for a shop repair. Is it a complicated repair?

    OK, New guy here. I've had an OLD Land Cruiser, Jeeps, 4X4 pickup, etc. - but never paid much attention to the Xterra.
