Here is the trick. Use a long screwdriver to pry between 2 of the bolts to hold the pulley while you loosen another bolt with a box-end wrench. Only loosen the bolt--do not remove it, so that it can be used as leverage to loosen the rest of the bolts. Do this for each bolt until they are all loose. OK?

Water pump


you must remove fan shroud. theres a tool for the clutch fan but you can use a impact hammer and a 12" bit (left hand thread) loosen pully bolts before removing belt (belt will hold pully from turning) then remove 4 or 6 bolts holding pump on (look at new pump for bolt amounts not sure) clean serfices and install)

Need to replace water pump on a1997 chevy lumina 3.1L V6 need insructions


3.1L And 3.4L (VIN E) Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Remove the drive belt guard.
  4. Loosen the water pump pulley bolts before removing the drive belt. This should help keep the pulley from turning as the bolts are loosened.
  5. Remove the drive belt. Please see Section 1.
  6. Remove the water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley.
  7. Remove the water pump bolts and separate the pump from the engine front cover.
To install:

  1. Clean all parts well. Use care when scraping gasket material from the front cover and the pump. Do not gouge aluminum parts. Clean the bolt threads well. The torque specification is low and if the bolt threads are dirty, an accurate torque is not possible and leaks are likely to develop.
  2. Using a new gasket, install the water pump to the front cover. Install the cleaned and lightly lubricated water pump bolts. Torque to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  3. Install the water pump pulley and bolts and torque to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  4. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of the removal process. When refilling the cooling system, use the proper mix of DEX-COOL® and water. Check for leaks.

On 98 intrigue water pump removal how do i clear the ps pully


Im not sure what engine you have since this information was not provided. But the Power Steering Pump pulley usually has some 'holes' on the pulley in which you can get a wrench through to loosen and remove the bolt.

These engines are identified as an interference engine and on no account must the crank shaft and cam shaft be moved with the timing belt removed. You no not need to remove the water pump. You need to remove the water pump pulley only (not the water pump). I trust this helps.
