You need to pull the flywheel. Use a "harmonic wheel puller" available from any auto parts store worth going to for around $20 or so. It has one BIG bolt in the middle and 3 smaller bolts around the periphery. The smaller bolts go in those holes in the flywheel. Screw them in evenly and deep enough to where they won't pull out under strain, but not so deep that they screw into components you don't want to trash. Then tighten the big bolt in the center. Oh, BTW, did I mention the safety glasses? Put them on just in case something's amiss. Once the center bolt is tight as you can get it, if the flywheel hasn't popped off yet, just smack the center bolt with a hammer. You're not trying to ring the bell at the carnival, just a smart whack should send enough vibration to loosen the flywheel.
