According to the pictures on e-bay, all that you need to do is to remove 4 bolts. The pulley should come off, so you can replace the pulley.
Be blessed.

Do I need special tools to change water pump on 2005 cadillac cts


  1. You'll need a tool to release the tension on the serpentine belt and when you need to put the belt back on. Regular standard socket wrenches will suffice for the rest.

2001 chevy impala Trying to change water pump. need to pull pulley off power steering pump. i have a puller but there is not enough room to use it. what solution do you have to get pulley or water pump off...


I replaced Intake Manifold Gaskets this weekend, which is a pain, however the water pump shouldn't be too difficult. Once the serpentine belts is removed, the water pump pulley is just attached with 4 bolts, I think they are either 10mm or 13mm if I remember correctly? They ARE a pain, because the pulley wants to turn, but it's do-able. After that is off, the water pump is pretty easy, roughly 6 or 8 bolts around the perimeter, just make sure the new one goes on the correct orientation, not turned clockwise/counter clockwise. There isn't a BIG difference in the bolt pattern, but it's enough to MAKE a big difference. Get each bolt threaded by hand before cranking them tight.

I need to replace the water pump pully on my 4.9 is this difficult


Hello: That is not difficult to replace the pulley. If the pulley wobbles it is not the pulley.... The shaft bearing may be bad and that would make the pulley wobble. The pulley is held on with three bolts that have a 13mm head. If after removing the pulley you can move the shaft up and down you need a water pump.

THE BATTERY LIGHT CCAME ON AND IT WAS DIFFICULT TO STEER POWER STEERING FLUID IS THERE BELT CANE UNRAVELED NO HOSES APPEAR TO BE LEAKING OR BROKE. HOW DO I PUT THE BELT BACK ON


First check all pulleys for wobble or looseness. If all pulleys are OK, use the below diagram to put the belt on all pulleys except alternator. Put a wrench on tensioner pulley and pull down until the belt will slip onto the alternator pulley. Check that belt is still on all pulleys before starting. If belt comes off again, one of the components is failing (usually an idler, tensioner or water pump wobbling).

How difficult is is to change the water pump on a 2000 Chevy Silverado and are there special tools needed?


Hi, my name is Ben. I wouldn't call this a difficult repair, but it is time consuming. You may need a special tool to help you remove the water pump pulley.
Remove the air intake duct, remove the upper radiator shroud,remove the fan assembly, loosen the bolts on the water pump pulley a few turns before removing the serpentine belt, then remove the serpentine belt, now remove the water pump pulley, if it's a V-8 remove the lower radiator hose and thermostat housing,unbolt the water pump, if it's tight lightly tap it with a RUBBER mallet. Important, clean the gasket surfaces very well. apply a thin coat of RTV on both gasket surfaces and install a new gasket. On V-6 engines use a small amount of the RTV on the bolt threads. The rest in the reverse of removal. Once completed, refill with coolant and check for leaks, bring the engine to notmal operating temperature and turn the heat on high

Chev Montecarlo 3.4 waterpump replacement


Not difficult at all. Drain radiator. Use 10 millimeter wrench and loosen water pump pulley bolts. The easy way to prevent pulley from turning is place a 3/8 inch drive ratchet in the belt tensioner and increase belt pressure to hold pulley. After bolts are loose, relieve tension on belt to remove it. Then remove bolts from pulley followed by pulley itself. There are 5 8 millimeter headed bolts holding pump on housing. Remove all five, clean housing surface, install new pump and gasket. Although there are five holes it will only line up one way. Pay attention to the removal of the original pump to line up new one. Reverse removal proceedure. Open bleeder screw(s) when refilling radiator. One will be one the metal tube above the water pump housing. The other will be at the opposite end of the engine where the radiator hose meets a metal outlet. This one will need to be opened a few times to bleed air as the thermostat opens after engine is cranked. Hope this helps.
