First of all,you need the removal tool which looks like this.

Copy and paste the following link.


http://www.etoolcart.com/gmnorthstarwaterpumpsocketast7880.aspx


You need to remove the air filter housing and ducting to gain easy access to the pump.

Remove the shield covering the pulley and belt. The belt is easily removed by levering the tensioner pulley.

The water pump is located at the lower radiator hose manifold where you will also find the thermostat.Remove the manifold cover and you will see the water pump.

Insert the removal tool over the pump making sure it is locked in position.You will need to use a breaker bar on the removal tool and turn the tool CLOCKWISE to release the pump (1/4 turn), or if you imagine the breaker bar being vertical, push towards the windscreen of your car,it takes quite a bit of force to unseat the pump hence the use of a breaker bar.

Installing the new pump does not require as much torque as removing the old one.Tighten the new pump to 73 ft.lbs. making sure it is seated properly before tightening.

Don't forget to clean out the water pump housing prior to installing the new pump and don't forget to include a new water pump gasket and housing cover gasket.

It is also a good idea to install a new thermostat while you're at it.

Hope this has been of some help.

2005 peugeot 206 GTI 180 cambelt changed at 82,000kms water pump now leaking advised to change cambelt at same time as replacing water pump odometer is now at 92,000 kms. What do you think?


when replacing the pump if the timing belt has to be removed , it is not necessary to replace the belt PROVIDING THAT THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE IS FOLLOWED
before removing the belt mark it with an arrow indication direction of movement replace the belt with the arrow correctly position as before removal
timing belts ( for want of a better description) breakin from running in a set direction
if replaced running in the reverse direction then the "breakin" gets far worse and early belt failure occurs
when the belt was replaced , if the cam seals , crank seals idler and hydraulic adjuster were not replaced then it might be worthwhile to have it done with the water pump as oil on a belt reduces the life to about 1/2

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 do i change a water pump on 2001 dodge intrepid?


This vehicle has a double overhead cam engine. The water pump is driven off the timing chain. Unless you have had experience doing internal engine repairs, this is not a DIYer job. There is great risk of doing more damage than good if any step(s) of the repair procedure are not done correctly.

Where is water pump located on a 2000 daewoo leganza cdx?


Your best bet here is to go to your local auto parts store and ask for a Haynes Manual for your vehicle. They run about 15 Bucks and will give you all the details on how to change your water pump. The water pump is kinda a pain to change on most vehicles but can be done in a good 8 hours. Thanks for using fixya! Hope this gives you some direction.

Sincerely,

JC
