Question about 1991 Volkswagen Jetta
Im trying to put all new belts on my car. im having trouble getting the water pump to loosen up so i can get the belt off. what bolts do i need to loosen to get the belt off or do you know where i can find a diagram?
These engines are identified as an interference engine and on no account must the crank shaft and cam shaft be moved with the timing belt removed. You no not need to remove the water pump. You need to remove the water pump pulley only (not the water pump). I trust this helps.

Use a screwdriver to unscrew the clamp that connects the negative battery cable to the battery post. Remove the cable. Jack up the car using an automotive jack.
Set a large container underneath the radiator at the drain hole to catch the discharged coolant. Open the cap on top of the radiator and unplug the drain plug underneath the radiator.
Remove the components that lead to the water pump using an adjustable wrench. In order, these include the upper and lower engine covers, the accessory drive belt and its tensioner and the upper and center timing belt covers.
Free up the timing belt by turning the engine so that the number one cylinder is at the TDC mark. Loosen the timing belt tensioner enough to ease the belt from the sprocket. Remove the timing belt mounting bolts.
Unbolt the water pump retaining bolts and then the water pump. Remove the o-ring and discard it. Clean the mounting surface.
