Question about Buick Cars & Trucks
The lower left mounting hole of the tensioner assembly I'm trying to remove has two nuts on it. After removing the first nut there is a bracket holding the heater hose to the stud bolt. I cannot pull the bracket off to get to the next nut without stressing the pipe coming out of the water pump. Do I have to remove the water pump from the engine block in order to slide that bracket off of the stud? If this is the case I would need to buy both the water pump gasket and the water pump to block gasket?

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.

Hi once you have all the bolts off for the mount raise the front of the motor up till you can remove the center part of the mount
I use a floor jack and a 2x4 across the oil pan then remove the studs for the motor mount bracket now remove the bracket and now you can get the water pump out
hope this helps

SOURCE: im replacing timing belt, accessory belts and water pump on my hyundai elantra gls 1997 sta wgn auto transmission. (1)Where is bolt to drain engine block coolant?(2)After removing front engine mountin
(1) No need to know if engine block coolant drain plug was available. Once the water pump was removed, all engine block coolant was drained. (2) After removing the three engine mounting bracket bolts, I also removed the mount bracket from the the body and made enough room to replace the timing belt easier.
