You need to poke a small extension with a 13mm socket through the holes in the power steering pulley, undo it, and slide it back.

SOURCE: installing the serpentine belt

The power steering pump is only held on by two bolts that are removed thru the pulley holes. Anyway you don't have to remove the whole motor mount just remove the nut that holds the mount just to the left of the balancer. then remove the stud with a inverted torx bit. then remove the sleeve the stud went thru and then the belt will come off.

SOURCE: replacing water pump on 2002

I haven't worked on the newer buicks but I play with alot of chevrolets and depending on the setup it maybe easier to pull the power steering pump bolts and lay it off to the side than it will be to pull the pulley of and press it back on. If you want to pull the pulley you will need a universal pulley puller available at most part stores, if the pulley has bolts in it you will remove the bolts and the puller will have bolts that will slide into the existing holes allowing you to remove the pulley.

SOURCE: Water pump removal on a 1996 Buick Riviera (supercharged)

there are two bolts that hold the power steering pump in place that are accesable through the holes in the pulley. If you use a 6" extension and a 1/2" socket you can reach them. this will allow the pump to be removed and hang by the hoses and be out of the way. I was told also to inspect the cam sensor while it is apart because you have to remove the water pump in order to get to it.

SOURCE: I almost have the water

To remove the pulley wheel from the power steering pump you typically have to remove 3 bolts but to get to those 3 bolts you have to use a socket and go through the holes on the pulley itself.

Do we need to remove engine to replace water pump on 2004 dodge caravan??? or can we get to it without removing much?


You didnt mention what engine you have, but if you have the 3.3 or 3.8 liter its actually very simple. Remove the belt, locate the water pump pulley, remove the bolts holding the pulley and the bolts for the water pump are behind the pulley. Remove them and water pump comes out. Reverse steps to install.

How do I get the pulley off that is in the way of ONE of the water pump bolts. The pulley has a allen wrench fastener in the center. I tried turning it left and right and it will not budge. There are...


I've gone as far as loosening the motor mounts and raising the engine with a jack. You still have to shoot through the wheel well with a long extension and socket for some bolts on that side.

How do i change a water pump in a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix


Hope the following will help.
1) Drain the radiator.
2) Loosen the 4 bolts on the water pump pulley. You will remove the pulley and install it on the new pump. Just loosen the bolts 1/4" turn with the belt still on, this will prevent the pulley from turning.
3) Remove serpentine belt.
4) Remove 4 bolts and the pulley and set aside.
5) Remove two power steering pump bolts (15mm). You must do this because one of the bolts for the water pump is behind the PS pulley, and you can�t remove it without moving the PS pump out of the way. The bolts on the PS pump are in the 12 o�clock and 6 o�clock position. There is a large access hole in the PS pump pulley. Just line it up, slip in a long socket and remove them. Let the PS pump rest on the oil filter housing.
6) Remove water pump. There are 4 large bolts (15mm) and 4 small bolts (3/8") on the water pump. After the bolts are all out, I placed a length of pipe on the water pump and gave it a couple taps with a hammer and it popped right off.
7) Remove old gasket. The tool of choice IMO is a razor blade like you�d use to remove a winshield inspection sticker. Be careful not to score the mating surface. Remove old gasket and dry off surface.
8) Seat the new gasket and water pump in place, install all the bolts.
9) Reinstall the PS pump and torque bolts.
10) Install pulley on water pump and torque.
11) Install serpentine belt.
12) Re-torque bolts on water pump pulley if needed.
