Remove the fan shroud behind the radiator. Loosen the bolts and set the shround back from the radiator so you can use a wrench to remove the 4 bolts on the water pump. Then remove both the shroud and fan. Loosenen the adjuster bracket for any belts and then remove the water pump. If the pump is out already, it is a simple mater to set the pump in a vise and take the fan off the pump. Both ways work but I've found the first method to work well for myself.

Replacing water pump


This is for the 3.9 v6 you did not specify motor size.
Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback Thank You and Good Luck


The water pump can be removed and installed without discharging the air conditioning system (if equipped).
  1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
  2. Drain cooling system.
  3. Do not waste reusable coolant. If solution is clean, drain coolant into a clean container for reuse.
WARNING: CONSTANT TENSION HOSE CLAMPS ARE USED ON MOST COOLING SYSTEM HOSES. WHEN REMOVING OR INSTALLING, USE ONLY TOOLS DESIGNED FOR SERVICING THIS TYPE OF CLAMP, SUCH AS SPECIAL CLAMP TOOL (NUMBER 6094). SNAP-ON CLAMP TOOL (NUMBER HPC-20) MAY BE USED FOR LARGER CLAMPS. ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WHEN SERVICING CONSTANT TENSION CLAMPS.

CAUTION: A number or letter is stamped into the tongue of constant tension clamps. If replacement is necessary, use only an original equipment clamp with matching number or letter.


  1. Remove upper radiator hose clamp and hose at radiator.
Fan Blade And Viscous Fan Drive-3.9L/5.2L/5.9L Engines 81898572


  1. The thermal viscous fan drive is attached (threaded) to the water pump hub shaft. Remove fan/viscous fan drive assembly from water pump by turning mounting nut counterclockwise as viewed from front. Threads on viscous fan drive are RIGHT HAND. A Snap-On 36 MM Fan Wrench (number SP346 from Snap-On Cummins Diesel Tool Set number 2017DSP) can be used. Place a bar or screwdriver between water pump pulley bolts to prevent pulley from rotating. Do not attempt to remove fan/viscous fan drive assembly from vehicle at this time.
  2. If water pump is being replaced, do not unbolt fan blade assembly from thermal viscous fan drive.
  3. Remove fan shroud attaching hardware (two bolts at bottom-two clips at top).
  4. Remove fan shroud and fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly from vehicle as a complete unit.
  5. After removing fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly, do not place thermal viscous fan drive in horizontal position. If stored horizontally, silicone fluid in viscous fan drive could drain into its bearing assembly and contaminate lubricant.
  6. Do not remove water pump pulley bolts at this time.
Automatic Belt Tensioner Assembly-3.9L/5.2L/5.9L Engines 81898573


  1. Remove accessory drive belt as follows: The drive belt is equipped with a spring loaded automatic tensioner. Relax tension from belt by rotating tensioner clockwise (as viewed from front). When all belt tension has been relaxed, remove accessory drive belt.
  2. Remove four water pump pulley-to-water pump hub bolts and remove pulley from vehicle.
  3. Remove lower radiator hose clamp and remove lower hose at water pump.
  4. Remove heater hose clamp and heater hose from heater hose coolant return tube.
Coolant Return Tube-3.9L/5.2L/5.9L Engines-Typical 81898574


  1. Loosen heater hose coolant return tube mounting bolt and remove tube from water pump. Discard the old tube O-ring.
Water Pump Bolts-3.9L/5.2L/5.9L Engines 81898575


  1. Remove seven water pump mounting bolts.
  2. Loosen clamp at water pump end of bypass hose. Slip bypass hose from water pump while removing pump from vehicle. Discard old gasket.
CAUTION: Do not pry water pump at timing chain case/cover. The machined surfaces may be damaged resulting in leaks.

  1. Drain the cooling system.
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the water pump.
  2. Remove the drive belt, fan, fan spacer, fan shroud, if so equipped, and water pump pulley.
  3. Remove the alternator pivot arm from the pump.
  4. Disconnect the heater hose at the water pump.
  5. Remove the water pump.
  6. Before installing the old water pump, clean the gasket mounting surfaces on the pump and on the cylinder block. If a new water pump is being installed, remove the heater hose fitting from the old pump and install it on the new one. Coat the new gaskets with sealer on both sides and install the water pump in the reverse order of removal. Torque the mounting bolts to 14-18 ft. lbs.

Water pump replacement - how involved is replacing the water pump


The waterpump on a chevy suburban can be removed once you remove the radiator fan.
  1. Drain the coolant from the system.
  2. Here is a way to remove the fan clutch withouy a fan clutch tool. The trick is to leave the belt on and tight.
  3. Take a 1 7/16 inch wrench and put it behind the fan onto the big shaft nut attaching the fan to the water pump. P
  4. ut it straight up and crack it counterclockwise with a hammer.
  5. This should loosen the nut.
  6. After that just spin the fan off and the rest is easy.
  7. Make sure you clean the old seal off of the engine. It is small and easy to miss.
  8. remove the serpentine belt.
  9. remove the hoses connecting to the water pump
  10. remove 4 bolts holding the water pump onto the block
  11. clean the block of any old gasket
  12. fit the new waterpump and new gasket.
  13. connect the hoses to the pump.
  14. refit the serpentine belt
  15. refit the fan

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.)

Water pump removal


The water pump sits on the front of the engine and has your fan blade connected to it. Remove the fan and unbolt the water pump from the engine. When putting in the new pump make sure to compare to the old one and replace the old gasket with a new one as well.

Water Pump Leaking


the hardest part of this job is removing your fan clutch. you removed your top fan shroud, then your fan clutch, its reverse thread. take off your belt, upper radiator hose and 6 10mm bolts hold it in. clean water pump housing and put all back together. aftermarket water pumps do not come with theermostat, dealer pumps do. remove your belt tensioner from old water pump 3- 15mm bolt, two different sizes and install on your new pump. you need, 10mm socket, 15mm socket, flat head screw driver, pliers to removed hose,fan clutch tool(rent at autoparts store)
