The new chevys are a pain. There should be alot of little nuts on the top of the shroud possibly under a small piece of weather stripping. There should also be 2 or 4 small bolts halfway down the shroud on both sides. Then there are 2 or 4 bolts on the bottom of the shroud. It should end up in two pieces with one piece coming out the top and one out the bottom. Removing the shroud most of the time is not necessary but it helps.

How to replace water pump on 4.2 liter 2004 trail blazer LS

4 bolts hold the shroud on. 2 on bottom,2 on top. Leave on in on the top until you remove the clutch fan. Clutch fans are a pain to get off with out the right tools. Once off, remove the bolt from the shroud and pull them out together. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove the pump.

I need to replace teh water pump on my 2002 chevy blazer. What is the easiest way of doing it? It looks like i need to disassemble the fan to get to it. Is there a way to work around that?

Forget easy. Easy, is when you have room to work on the water pump. Remove all things necessary to do the job. Take your time.
Good time to replace belts and free up alt,power steering,vac pump,etc,bolts and get them moving freely. Don't try to do less.Do more, and save time in the future,when your in there for something else.

I'm looking for torque specs on the water pump bolts to the block for 2000 chevy blazer 4.3 L

Fig. Exploded view of the water pump assembly mounting-4.3L engine


To install:
  1. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces.
    NOTE The water pumps on some of the engines covered may have been installed using sealer only, no gasket, at the factory. If a gasket is supplied with the replacement part, it should be used. Otherwise, a 1 / 8 in. (3mm) bead of RTV sealer should be used around the sealing surface of the pump.
  2. Apply sealant to the water pump retainer threads.
  3. Install or connect the following:

    Water pump using a new gasket. Tighten the water pump retainers to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm) for 4.2L engines, or to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm) for 4.3L engines. For 5.3L engines, tighten the bolts to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm), then to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Coolant hose(s) Water pump pulley. Tighten the pulley bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm). Fan or fan and clutch assembly Serpentine drive belt (if equipped) by positioning the belt over the pulleys and carefully allow the tensioner back into contact with the belt. V-belts (if equipped) and adjust the tension Upper fan shroud Negative battery cable
  4. Refill the engine cooling system.
  5. Run the engine and check for leaks.

Hope this help to solve it; rebember rated this post. Good luck.

How do i get the fan off of a '99 chevy blazer so i can take the water pump out?

Well lets see.
Top radiator shroud has to come off.
A special tool is required to hold the pulley/waterpump from turning so the large nut on the front can be removed.
some guys leave the serpentine belt on to assist in this part since that large nut can be a real pain.
All in all it seems to take people about 4 hours to do this job of R&R the water pump. Shop might charge two hours labor for it.

How to change a water pump?

You will need to remove the upper fan shroud, remove the fan clutch that is threaded onto the water pump it is easiest to get the tool for this or you can use a bar between two of the pulley bolts and use a cresent wrench on the big nut. After you remove the fan clutch there is the small hoses on the top of the water pump and the lower hose on the bottom of pump. Then there are only four bolts holding the pump to the motor. Reinstall in reverse order. Let me know if you need more help.
