Hook the belt back into place as best as you can, then get a decent spanner (or two) on the damper and pull or push it (can't remember which way it needs to go off the top of my head) to give enough room to slip the belt into place on it.

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.

How to change a water pump on 99 buick regal 3.8 L

You need to release the tension on the serpentine belt first. Special tools are available to do this. Take out the bolts that hold the pulley on the pump.Once this is done then you can start removing the bolts that hold the water pump on. They are small diameter bolts so not much pressure is needed to turn them. Watch the length of each bolt removed and note which hole it came from. If the pump doesn't fall off after the last bolt is removed, tap it with a rubber mallet. Now scrape the old gasket from the engine. Be careful not to gouge the metal and do not leave any material behind on the engine. When installing the new gasket put a couple of bolts on the new pump to use as a guide when putting the new pump back on the engine. Tighten all the bolts, put the pulley back on the pump and put the serpentine belt back.

Water pump 98 lincoln contenianal

If your engine looks the same as the video, the pump can removed without having to move other components out of the way.

Drain radiator

Loosen the pump pulley bolts with the serpentine belt still on. This will put tension on the pulley so it doesn\'t turn. Then take serpentine belt off. Then remove the four bolts on the water pump. Have a drip pan under the pump. Clean pump mating surface on the engine. Install new pump with O ring. The link below gives detailed info.

    Serpentine Belt came off

    Yes it would have been part of the job unless you have a electric water pump wich I very much doubt. Let the mechanic know what happened. Serpentine belts can be put on a diffrent way to normal & look right but be slightly loose & may come off. I always draw a diagram before removeing it if there is not a diagram on the bonnett. They should have a book or be able to look up the correct routing.

    I need to remove the water pump on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am. What is neccesary to remove the front timing chain cover? I have the instructions to remove the water pump, but it involves removing the front...

    Just to clarify i asked what size motor was in his car. The reason for that statement that removing the timing cover ,chain and exhaust wasent required to change the water pump is that on 3.4 V6 engines none of that is required. To change the water pump in my car ( 99 grand am gt 3.4L) all you need to do is remove serpentine belt, remove the 4 bolts holding on the water pump pulley, then remove the 5 water pump retaining bolts and it out. Then you just need t remove any traces of the old gasket clean the surface put a new gasket on following it with the new water pump torque the 5 retaining bolts , water pump pulley torque its 4 bolts put the serpentine belt back on fill and bleed the coolant system and your done. All the work done easily from the top of the motor without any special tools. It took me a hour and a half. So there is a huge difference in changing water pumps on a 4 cylinder engine and a 6 cylinder engine this is why I asked what engine he had in his car.

    1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Water Pump Housing removal

    I am sure the leak is the water pump based on years of Escort work, The ZX2 is equipped with a 2.0L DOHC V-Tech engine. The water pump is on the front (rt side of car) of the engine block, visible with the hood up. NAPA autoparts replacement instructions are to loosen the belt drive pulley from the pump BEFORE removing the serpentine belt. Once the four bolts are loose, take the belt off (good time to replace?) remove bolts and old water pump (four more bolts)- it will be tight, but it comes out- clean gasket area and install new gasket and pump in reverse order. That includes putting the pulley on and hand tightening the bolts, put on the belt, finish tightening the bolts to the pulley.
