The bolt holding you up is on the bottom by the compressor, right? You Will have to have an inverted torx socket to remove the studs. Also there is a spacer behind the mount bracket, remember where it goes. You will have to pull the pully bolts and get it out of the way too. Some of those cars have plastic elbows going from the intake to the water pump, be carefull with it. Your motor may not have this but be ready to replace it if it does because it will most likley break. Good Luck.

SOURCE: 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier, 2.2 Water Pump.Can't remove pully.

USUALLY I LOOSEN ALL OF THE BOLTS BEFORE I TAKE THE BELT OFF TO HELP KEEP THE PULLEY FROM TURNING... USE A LONG SCREWDRIVER OR PRYBAR .. PUT IT BETWEEN THE TWO OTHER BOLTS AND LOOSEN THE 3RD. CONTINUE TILL ALL ARE LOOSE.. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REMOVED 2 OF 3 BOLTS THEN RE INSTALL THE OTHER 2 A FEW THREADS SO YOU CAN PUT THE SCREWDRIVER IN BETWEEN THEM TO STOP THE PULLEY FROM TURNING.

Ok, it's best to have the fan belt ON all the way, that way it holds the pulley in place. Then, put your wrench on the nut, and tap the wrench with a hammer. This will break it loose, and then you can unscrew it the rest of the way. It works like an impact wrench.

SOURCE: in changing the water pump I cant get the fan

there is a tool . there are holes in the fan pulley that a span wrench fits into that hold the pulley from turning when you put a wrench on the fan nut . Now if you do not have the tool you can try tapping on the nut a little bit with a hammer .. then put the wrench on it and hit the wrench with a rubber mallet . the shock of this may loosen the nut and let you spin the fan off I also have had to apply heat to that nut to get them to loosen . (kind of like tapping on a jar lid to get it too loosen to open)

  1. Remove air filter to give you more room to play
  2. Loosen alternator and alternator tensioner. Alternator tensioner bolts to water pump so that bolt will need to come out.
  3. With the alternator loose, the main drive belt should be loose and be able to be removed, do this.
  4. Loosen the tensioner bolt for the air conditioner, on the underside of the engine. Losen the nut on the air conditioner tension wheel. The tensioner wheel should now slide up and down freely, allowing removal of the air conditioner belt.
  5. Remove the 4 x 10mm bolts on the water pump pulley. Remove the water pump pulley.
  6. Remove the 4 x 10mm bolts on the camshaft pulley. This is the main pulley that all the belts connect to. There is a large 17mm bolt in the middle of this pulley that does not need to be removed. (Crankshaft Bolt).
  7. The camshaft pulley should slide off, however you will probably have no clearance (because of the crankshaft bolt) to remove the pulley. The pulley has to be removed.
  8. Place a jack under the sump, use a piece of wood to protect the sump. Jack the sump up 1/2 inch. Undo the two 14mm bolts in the engine mounts. When the two left hand engine mount bolts are out, lower the jack slowly until you can slide the camshaft pulley out.
  9. Remove the plastic timing belt cover.
  10. You should now see the timing belt, remove the timing belt tensioner pulley, being careful not to move the timing belt wheels.
  11. Undo the bolts holding the water pump.
  12. Water pump should come off, water will come out if you haven't drained it.
  13. Scrape off gasket.
  14. Install new water pump.
  15. Reassemble in reverse order.

If cover was separated from body during removal, join this componets with a new gasket and hand tighten bolts. Apply bearing grease to splines of water pump drive. Set body and assemble into position.
Install and hand tighten bolts securing cover to cylinder block. Install and hand tighten bolts securing cover to cylinder block. Installand hand tighten nuts securing body to timing chain housing. Lubracate outlet pipe "O" ring with antifreeze. (I use RTV) Connect outlet pipe. Install and hand tighten bolts. Tighten bolts and nuts to specification in the following sequence. I'll ad the torque spec. at the end but this is where if you tighten out of order something will break.

pump cover to cylinder block bolts (Bottom Bolt First)
outlet pipe to cover bolts
To complete installation reverse removel procedure.
Torque specs are 19 in. or 26mm all except water pump cover bolts which are 124 in or 14Nm
I never torque the bolts just make sure there done in the right order.

Im trying to remove a water pump on a 1985 f150.i cant get the clutch fan off


If their is one large nut between the fan and pump then look for notches in the side of the sharp edges of the nut. If they are there then it is lefthand thread.

1999 Buick Park Avenue water pump removal


that is not an idler pully that is the power steering pully if you feel through the holes in the pully you will feel the 13 mm head bolts that hold the pump to the block remove those bolts the pump will drop down and you can then remove the water pump also you have to remove the studs using the inverted torx end on the stud to unscrew it then the mount will come out

How do you take fan off to get to water pump


A special fan tool is required to remove the fan from the water pump. Yes it does unscrew. One part of the tool holds the bolts of the pulley while the other part unscrews the large nut on the water pump. Tool rental is available at some auto parts stores.

Remove water pump have removed outer plastic blades of viscous fan and the four small bolts behind the water pump it seems loose but will not come away, is it just the internal impeller blades dont want to...


what's up led, the large viscous nut is loosened in the clockwise direction. after you remove the 4 nuts on the water pump, you should see one hole on each side of the water pump body. if you take 2 bolts out of the thermostat housing, you can use those to thread in the pump body holes.slowly tighten each bolt equally and the pump should come out. to install a new pump, lubricate the o-ring on the new pump and just push in by hand.
