Cannot get water pump off

I have taken off what I think is every bolt but the pump will not come off. I hit the alternator brakett petty hard and it did not give. I have felt all around the water pump and alternator brakett and cannot find any more bolts. Is there something else I need to remove or do do I just need to hit the alternator brakett harder. Thanks, Terry

Take a good look at the new one...usually it will help you locate any hidden bolts. Use a paint scraper or thin item like that to separate the pump from the cover. If you beat on it you may damage the locating pins.(if they're still there)

      Follow these steps and it will help. But nothing is as good as a Video. YouTube would help at that. Drain the radiator by twisting the drain plug at the base of the radiator in a counterclockwise direction with a wrench until the radiator fluid begins to exit from the center of the plug. Tighten the plug back into the radiator after the radiator is drained.

      Remove the four bolts from the center of the fan blades with a wrench then pull the blades off of the water pump.

      Disconnect the intake manifold hose, the heater hose and the lower radiator hose from the water pump. The intake manifold hose is located on the right side of the top of the water pump. The heater hose is just to the left of the intake manifold hose, and the lower radiator hose is located at the bottom of the water pump. Each of the three hoses attaches to the water pump with a band clamp. Loosen the screw on each band clamp with a flat head screwdriver then pull the hoses off of the water pump.

      Disconnect the alternator brackets from the water pump. The alternator uses an upper and lower bracket, each of which is secured to the water pump with a single bolt. The opposite end of each bracket holds the alternator in place with a bolt. Loosen the bolts which hold the alternator to the upper and lower brackets, then rotate the alternator towards the engine to slacken the alternator belt. Pull the belt off of the front of the alternator, then remove the bolts which hold the upper and lower brackets to the water pump with a wrench.

      Smear gasket sealer over both sides of the replacement water pump gasket then push one side of the gasket onto the back of the water pump. Position the water pump onto the front of the engine then install each of the water pump's retaining bolts with a wrench.

      Position the upper and lower alternator brackets against the water pump, then install the brackets' retaining bolts through each bracket and into the water pump with a wrench.

      Place the alternator's belt into the groove of the alternator's pulley then pull the alternator away from the engine to tighten the belt. Tighten the bolt which secures the bottom of the alternator to the lower alternator bracket with a wrench.

      Position the fan blades onto the tip of the water pump then install each of the four fan blade bolts with a wrench.

How do you change a water pump on a 2001 nissan altima?


Just did this over the weekend with my 2001 Nissan Altima. First, remove the negative battery cable to prevent shorting. Drain the radiator by removing the drain screw. To gain access to the water pump, I had to remove the upper radiator hose to the engine, unattach the reserve tank hose from the radiator and take out the reserve tank, remove the alternator and the lower alternator bracket because it blocks access to one of the water pump bolts and move the serpentine belt out of the way. This should give you free access to the six bolts that attach the water pump. You will probably have to hit the water pump with a rubber mallet or some other tool to break the sealant on the water pump, but it should then just come off. The hardest part of the job for me was removing the bolts for the alternator bracket because they were on extremely tight. Reinstall your new water pump after applying sealant to all parts that will attach to the bracket, and your ready to put it all back together. If you have the right tools, this should take probably 4 or 5 hours to complete.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.

    CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

  3. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  4. Loosen but do not remove the four coolant pump pulley bolts.
  5. Raise and support the vehicle safely.

1991 chevy 1500 water pump removal


I'm not so certain you need to take that pulley off to get the water pump off. All the bolts should be accessible. Aren't there holes in the pulley that line up with any hidden bolts in behind? GM is well known for doing that. Rotate the pulley until you can sneak a socket through the pulley hole and get onto the bolts you need. (Unless this is a different design).

Alternator


you will have to find the belt tensioner it will be a pully attached to the engine that you will be able to move with a large pry bar or some have a spot for a socket ratchet to fit in so find the pulley and take the tension of the belt and remove make sure however that the diagram for routing the belt is still visible or make notes of where the belt goes the diagram should be on the radiator support or the under side of the hood remove the (-) battery cable find out where all the bolts that hold the alt to the braketts lossen bolts then remove wires on the alt remove bolts install opposite of removall.Hope this helps
