I am replacing a water pump on a 1999 dodge durango, 318 ci, 5.2 litre engine. i am already encountering problems, i started removing the water pump assembly, removed all the bolts, the whole things is loose. i did this in the rain. after i was done i noticed i have 2 different sized bolts, and completely forgot where the bolt go in what holes. next, how, with the assembly loose, do i get it out of the motor bay, still attached to the fan and fan clutch. i think might of got ahead of myself on the one. and once out of the motor bay, do i remove the pully from the water pump? any help would be greatly appreciated, i am writing from dillingham alaska, resources are limited to the do it yourself level. thank you.

Ur supposed to unscrew the fan at that big nut and remave the cooling fan shroud first then youll have all kinds of room. snug the pump back to the motor and break that nut loose. i always use an air hammer and chisel in the left of the top flat on the nuts, it starts it in the right direction and then un threads easy. you have to hold the pump pulley and turn that big *** nut. you can borrow tools from parts store for it if you dont have anything
