ok i 've gotten this far in taking the timing belt off. now i am stuck(its a 1985 325e) the manual said some cars you can just slide the belt off if you have a one piece crank hub. but if you have a 2 piece crank hub you have to take the hub off with a big ****ing socket. well my question is =by these pictures am i correct in assuming i have a multipiece hub and if so when taking that huge nut out how can i hold the crank hub? can i put it in gear and just break it loose, or does any body have any better ideas of how to get the belt out of that space and get the new one in?????

thanks guys

u have to wiggle it side to side to get the vibration damper out.

just tap it side to side with a hammer/mallet.... it'll wiggle itself loose.
