Water pump replacement

I've never worked on this sort of vehicle but when I replaced my water pump in another, I had to losen the Alternator to get the belt off since it went to both. You'll need to get a manual on your vehicle from an auto parts store. THere should be directions in that about how to replace your water pump.

Need to know how to remove nut on water pump to remove fan/ clutch. have wrenchs

That is about a 36 mm wrench,which is close to
1 7/16".
You will have to borrow one,then use a long pry bar to hold the
nuts on the pulley to pump,so it won't turn

The fan screws on normal direction, as I recall

I have a 1996 dodge ram 1500 4x4 and im trying to remove the front hub assembly off the passenger side and cant figerout how to get the 3 boults out that houled it on. i can get the center one off

just remove the nuts on the back side of the hub. the hub will still be firmly in place. you will have to beat either the hub itself or on the bolts from the back to get it loose. they are usually in there pretty tight, so it will take quite a bit of force to get it loose.

Unable to remove fan from water pump

Remember, fan has a reverse thread. Righty-tightey, lefty-loosey does not apply. You need a clutch fan wrench. (available at your local auto parts store.)

Before you remove the serp belt, loosen the clutch fan bolts from the water pump. Other wise you will be fighting with them later. Other wise just drain the coolant and remove the pump. I would suggest a new thermostat since the coolant is drained. Make sure the block surface is cleaned of all gasket material and other dirt before installing your new pump. I usually scrape the area with a putty knife and wipe it down with some brake clean on a rag.
