the bolt is standard thread, right hand. remove going counter clockwise. it is very tight and must be re tightened to the same.

Thanks Roy,How do you keep pulley from moving so the bolt will come off
Replymastertech6371, February 22, 2012, 18:13Master

Can you gain access to the flywheel teeth to stick a large screw driver in the teeth to stop it from moving as you try to undo the bolt (will take two people).Also put transmission in Park or 1rst gear and apply hand brake to "load" the drive train. Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners. www.kiatechinfo.com
Once bolt is off you may need a threaded harmonic balancer removal tool cheap from Harbor Freight or other on line tool store.
