unscrew the bolts and leave them in the hole they come in. loosen all 4, than slowly work the spacer off a little at a time. be carefull not to hit the radiator. the bolts are about 3/8 long in the water pump. good luck AND GOOD DAY
Start with the power steering belt it takes a 12 mm socket for the bolt in the power steering . also loosen the bolt on the power steering pump pulley. remove the radiator lower fan shroud. It just clips in. pull the power steering belt around the fan and out of the engine compartment then do the a/c belt. That is the best way I know how.
Disconnect lower radiator hose, heater hose and bypass hose from water pump.
Remove fan, spacer, water pump pulley and fan shroud.
Remove A/C compressor/power steering pump bracket and accessories to clear water pump stud bolt.
Remove water pump attaching bolts and the water pump.
Reverse procedure to install. Tighten water pump retaining bolts to 12-18 ft. lbs.
NOTE: All water pumps have a sealed bearing integral with the water pump shaft. The bearing requires no lubrication. A bleed hole in the pump housing allows water that may leak past the seal to be thrown out by the slinger. This is not a lubrication hole. If the pump is damaged and requires repair, replace it with a new pump or a rebuilt one.
I Need your Help Also !! PLEASE RATE ME
sometimes those bolts are hard to get off. just keep trying and be sure not to strip them. put a big screwdriver or a pry bar between two of the bolts as you loosen one. then do the same all the way around the fan. and be sure to take out the radiator shroud to have more clearance
A manual will have pictures and everything.
Just replaced mine. Five bolts in bracket holding tension idler, A/C
compressor (if applicable) and power steering pump must be removed to
access 3 bolts in water pump. Just push aside enough to access
remaining bolts. Email at firstname.lastname@example.org if additional info is
needed. Also, diagram serpentine belt before removing. Took me at least
15 attempts and 20 minutes to figure out
