Question about 2004 Buick LeSabre
Water pump pulley seems locked up I'm guessing it should be rotating freely like other pulleys, power steering, etc?

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.

disconnect the engine mount on the side and carefully raise that side of the engine, also remove the water pump pulley, u will need a PS pulley puller, u can borrow one form most discount auto parts stores for just a deposit.

pretty simple really take the belt off and the pulley is held on with a 12mm or 14mm bolt and then put it all back together the way it came apart. hope this has helped you and good luck with you project !

I haven't worked on the newer buicks but I play with alot of chevrolets and depending on the setup it maybe easier to pull the power steering pump bolts and lay it off to the side than it will be to pull the pulley of and press it back on. If you want to pull the pulley you will need a universal pulley puller available at most part stores, if the pulley has bolts in it you will remove the bolts and the puller will have bolts that will slide into the existing holes allowing you to remove the pulley.
