Most often you do not need to totally remove the right motor mount. GM unfortunately made one bolt on the water pump that you can't get to w/o messin with the motor mount. There are actually two bolts that have access holes in the motor mount but in many cases you can get at and remove the one bolt with some clever maneuvering and the right tool. Yet that leaves the other ****** bolt. Now this is the PO factor....just one bolt you know some idiot designer left to make every bodies life difficult. So here is how you do it step by step. Loosen the bolts on the water pump flywheel then remove the belt. Take a oil-pan length 2x4 and use it in between jack and oil pan and jack up engine almost so that steering pump fluid cover on top side almost hits cross bar. Remove the center bolt of the motor mount holding the two halves of the mount together. Remove two bolts and one nut on the engine side mount. Remove 4 bolts (2 on top and two hidden on side) of the bolts holding the mount to the frame. Now take a big 2x4 and wedge it so as to move the engine to the driver side of the compartment. At the same time rotate and move the mount piece on the engine side--rotating about the stud [that the nut came off of]--so as to partly split apart the two mount halves. You'll see that you can now get at the two hidden bolts. Remove the water pump pulley wheel. There are a bunch of small and little bolts in the water pump...some on bottom side. Remove them and old pump. Scrape off old gasket. Apply new gasket and sealer to new pump and reverse order to install

93 buick park ave Ultra. replacing water pump...must I remove the front passenger side motor mount??


Yes. Put a jack under the motor and remove 3 bolts from side of engine and the long center pivot bolt in mount and the 2 bolts that go top down into the frame and loosen the 2 bolts below mount. Jack up the motor until you can separate the mount, leaving the engine side in and removing the frame side. The engine side can be moved out of the way without completely removing.

Motor mounts to access water pump


You must loosen the motor mounts on the body of the car. I did not disconnect the motor mounts completely to get at the water pump bolts. One ALL motor mount bolts are removed I jack up the motor with a floor jack.
