Question about 1996 Buick Park Avenue
Your car has 3.8L engine (3800) good engine, if your talking about the bolt all the way to the left end of the water pump, you will need a power steering pulley tool, autozone rents these tools for a small deposit which they will return or what you can do is loosen that bolt as much as you can, with all the other water pump bolts remove break off the water pump it's no good any way, clean all the old gasket off, on the new water pump you will need to slot the hole so you can slide the new water pump under that bolt also cut the gasket the same size as the slot you made. if you dont have any thing to slot the new water pump hole, I would just rent the puller tool. I have done this many of time's with this engine, Good luck and I hope this was very helpful.

You should not have to remove any pulley besides the water pump pulley.This is the only pulley you need to remove.Take a good look and make sure you are not removing more than you need to.There should only be 8 bolts.There are no reverse thread bolts on this engine.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the reverse thread answer, but I had to remove the power steering pump to get the last bolt out. Once I did that, everything else was downhill....Thanks"
