X2. The right tool is only $15 or so, and free to rent at a lot of places, no reason to not use one. You've ruined the balancer, time for a new one. The rubber between the inner and outer rings is bonded and vulcanized in place. When you pull it apart, it will never stay together again and it'll take out a lot of parts when it comes apart the second time.if you would have used the right tool to take it off you would have NEVER run into this problem.
