SOURCE: replace water pump
Slack off the alternator and spin off the belts then the 4 10mm nuts holding the fan pulley on lift away the fan and the pulley then its the ring of 12mm head bolts to get the pump off itself .Use a new gasket here on the rebuild .
If you have A/C the the a/c belt comes off first by slacking off the compressor and you may find the whole job easier if you pop off the top plastic fan guard .

damage to the engine, exhaust and/or catalytic converter. Repairing or
replacing these parts can be extremely expensive. A reputable garage or
a Vauxall/Opel garage should be able to diagnose and repair the
A solid (unblinking) light indicates a non-critical fault in the emmisions exhaust system. Many faults are covered by this light including failures in emssions sensors, temperature sensors and a variety of other parts. This usually results in a higher than average amount of environmentally harmful pollutants being expelled from the car, loss of power and/or gradual damage to the engine, exhaust and catalytic converter. While the car can still be driven with a non-critical emmisions problem, it is highly recommended that the fault is diagnosed and repaired at a reputable garage or Vauxhall/Opel garage.
