Question about Cars & Trucks
I took the bracket off by removing the two bottom bolts to position it on a wooden base. As I was priming water leaked from the gap so I assumed the bolts were not tight enough so I tightened them more but not too much. Pump stopped leaking all was fine one week later the bolts have pulled their mounts out of the pump body. Now is this due to me putting the mount on incorrectly or the bolts too tightly? I put the mount on the bolt head side not in the middle of the pump body / motor.I'm sure this was correct as I cannot see any pictures of it's position. Also the pressure was good (45psi) but once or twice it had'nt kicked on I had to do it manually does this mean the pressure tank needs air or do I have a fautly foot valve?

The bolt holding you up is on the bottom by the compressor, right? You Will have to have an inverted torx socket to remove the studs. Also there is a spacer behind the mount bracket, remember where it goes. You will have to pull the pully bolts and get it out of the way too. Some of those cars have plastic elbows going from the intake to the water pump, be carefull with it. Your motor may not have this but be ready to replace it if it does because it will most likley break. Good Luck.

Hi once you have all the bolts off for the mount raise the front of the motor up till you can remove the center part of the mount
I use a floor jack and a 2x4 across the oil pan then remove the studs for the motor mount bracket now remove the bracket and now you can get the water pump out
hope this helps

SOURCE: im replacing timing belt, accessory belts and water pump on my hyundai elantra gls 1997 sta wgn auto transmission. (1)Where is bolt to drain engine block coolant?(2)After removing front engine mountin
(1) No need to know if engine block coolant drain plug was available. Once the water pump was removed, all engine block coolant was drained. (2) After removing the three engine mounting bracket bolts, I also removed the mount bracket from the the body and made enough room to replace the timing belt easier.

The parts people at the dealership are usually glad to make you a copy of whatever you need.. Their pictures are the same as in some Mercury repair books.
