Remove the PS pump without disconnecting any lines and just move it aside enough to get the water pump out.

SOURCE: on 98 intrigue water pump removal how do i clear the ps pully

Im not sure what engine you have since this information was not provided. But the Power Steering Pump pulley usually has some 'holes' on the pulley in which you can get a wrench through to loosen and remove the bolt.

You need to poke a small extension with a 13mm socket through the holes in the power steering pulley, undo it, and slide it back.

SOURCE: Camaro Water Pump!!!!

For those attempting this, it must be known that to get to last pump bolts the mounting bracket for the coil packs has to be removed. But to do this you have to remove the power steering pump pulley, and for that you need a special tool. The kit cost about $65.00 and has the adapters to not only pull off the pulley, but has studs that thread into the end of the power steering pumps shaft to get it back on. Also make note that the bolts around the circumference of the water pump all need to be torqued to specific inch/ pounds and ft/pounds, so a torque wrench is needed.

How to remove water pump on a 98 oldsmobile intrigue

It is very easy! Take off belt by putting a wrench or socket on tensioner pully and rotating it. belt will come right off. You will have to drain coolant. then take out all of the bolts holding the water pump on. you will have to remove the power sterring pump to get to the very back bolt. Make sure you clean old gasket off of the motor and install new gasket with sealer. reassemble in reverse order.
On '98s at least there is an access hole in the p/s pulley that gives you access to that last bolt
I found no access hole except through the power steering which was easier to remove than the PS pully that a pully remover does not have sufficient room. Two bolts top and bottom through the access holes for the PS pump and it is out of the way of the last water pump bolt.

How do i get to the bolt on waterpump behind a pulley on 2005 chevy impala ls with a 3.8 engine? Bolt is behind a power steering pulley......

It would probably be easiest to remove the whole power steering pump. Sometimes you have to work around things like that when workin on cars

I am having trouble finding a coolant leak, on the firewall side of a3.8 liter chevy engine, Impala. hoses look good, new water pump. what is there up behind there to leak?

the heater hoses pass through the firewall into the heater core, which resides inside the dashboard. either one of the hoses themselves is leaking, or the heater core.

I'm trying to replace the failed water pump for my 2005 grand caravan. I've removed the pully bolts and housing bolts and moved the pully inward between the pump housing and the hub, but don't seem to have...

you can pry the engine over.. there will be just enough clearance to get
it passed the frame... just be carefull when prying it over not to slip cause you'll break the water pump on installation if the engine rocks back.

Doing a water pump on a 01 chevy impala wit a 3.8. and the last dam bolt on the pump is right in line wit the p/s pully , and not where the holes would normaly line up wit it but its right on the rib line....

If you can't reposition the P/S pully to line up the hole and bolt you will need to remove the power steering pump to get to that last bolt. Good luck.
