2001 vw beetle service manual ? need to change water pump, how hard is it? dont look to bad.


Check this procedure to how to replace a water pump (DIY Complexity: Moderate / Time: 3.5 hours):

Parts:
1. Water Pump

Tools:
1. Screwdriver
2. Scraper
3. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
4. Cooling System Pressure Tester
5. Needle Nose Pliers
6. Socket Set
7. Radiator Hook Tool

Supplies:
1. Coolant
2. Silicone Sealant

Steps:
Step 1 With the engine off and cold, open the hood and locate the vehicle’s water pump.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
o Tip: Before removing the radiator cap, squeeze the upper radiator hose to verify that the cooling system is not pressurized.

Step 2 Remove the radiator cap.

Step 3 Install cooling system pressure tester. Apply the pressure indicated on the radiator cap or in the owner’s manual.

Step 4 Inspect cooling system components for leaks.

Step 5 Place a drain pan under the radiator. Open drain valve or remove the lower radiator hose to drain cooling system.
o Tip: Depending on the vehicle, lifting the vehicle may be required to gain access to the lower radiator hose.

Step 6 Remove the drive belts or serpentine belt.

Step 7 Remove any hoses connected to water pump.

Step 8 Unbolt water pump from engine. Remove the water pump.

Step 9 Using a gasket scraper, clean the mating surface on the engine block.

Step 10 Install new water pump and new gasket. Tighten bolts to manufacturer’s specifications.
o Tip: You may want to use a light bead of silicone designed for water pumps.

Step 11 Re-install any hoses and belts that were removed.

Step 12 Re-install drain plug or lower radiator hose.
o Tip: Squeeze the radiator hose. If it feels soft you may want to replace the hose at this time. Always use new hose clamps.

Step 13 Refill radiator with a 50/50 mix of coolant and distilled water, then pressure test the cooling system and check for leaks.

Step 14 Fill overflow reservoir with same mixture.

Step 15 Leave the radiator cap off, start engine and let it idle. You should see the system“burping” bubbles of air. Refill the radiator to the top.
o Tip: Most air is expelled after a couple minutes of idling. Be cautious of potentially hot fluid overflowing.

Step 16 Install radiator cap.

Step 17 Road test vehicle, keep an eye on the engine temp gauge if vehicle runs hot, there still might be an air pocket in the cooling system. The cooling system should be topped off after vehicle has fully cooled down.

Good luck.

How do you replace a water pump in a 1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo?


Hi there Ramarob

Here's a step by step to remove and replace the water pump on your Cherokee.

Be advised, all 4.0L engines, some 2.8L engines and some 4.2L engines have a reverse rotating water pump. You can ID these from the word REVERSE or REV imprinted or cast on the housing and/or fan. There will also be an 'R' stamped into the impellor.

Make sure your replacement pump is the correct type, If not, expect some major turmoil.

The procedure:
1. Remove negative battery cable
2. Open radiator valve - drain cooling system2.gif
3. Remove cooling fan2.gif and shroud
4. Remove belts (see my tip on serpentine belts if needed)
5. Remove water pump pulley from hub
6. Remove hoses from water pump
7. Remove accessory brackets from the water pump.
When removing the P/S pump and/or AC compressor, leave the hoses attached and move them out of the way.
8 . Remove the remaining bolts and detach the water pump from the engine. The bolts are three different lengths. Make note of where they came from.
9. Compare the new and old pumps. Make sure they match.
10. Scrape off the old gasket material.
11. Apply a thin continuous line of RTV High Temp sealant to the water pump side of the gasket.
12. Put a couple bolts through the pump to hold the gasket in place and mount the gasket.
13. Apply Another coat to the other side of the gasket.
14. Attach the pump to the engine. Screw the bolts in finger tight.
15. Attach the remaining bolts.
16. Tighten them up in 1/4 turn increments.
17. Re-attach all the stuff you removed
18. Refill the coolant, adjust belt tension.
19. Run the engine and check for leaks.

Hope this is very helpful
