    I Have a '99 Breeze, Because it is packed so tight in the Engine bay you have to remove alot of stuff to get to the water pump.it does require alot of time and patience for the novice,but of course if you did this for a living ,it would be a piece of cake ! my problem is getting on to first base, how does one go about finding top dead center and keep the cam shaft from rotating ? once I find out how to do that , i believe ,I'm a good part of the way of having enough guts to do this job myself,and kiss the so called mechanics in my town ,adieux!

Do i have to remove my timing belt in order to replace my water pump in my 1997 ford thunderbird lx its a 4.6 v8


Your car use3s a timing chain not a belt. The water pump will be serviced by first removing the serpentine belt and then removing the water pump pulley and then finally removing the water pump. It is a fairly easy pump to replace.

If you have any further question please ask I I will be happy to help.

Remove belt, fan, fan shroud and fan bracket. Remove timing covers, timing belt and water pump. Replace timing belt and the hydraulic tensioner with new ones. I suggest you get a mechanic to do this as you can easly get it out of time. Not an easy job.

HOW TO CHANGE THE WATER PUMP


There isn't really an easy way, as the water pump is driven by the timing belt, requiring removal of the timing covers, timing belt etc to replace. This is definitely a job for a mechanic, or at least a skilled handyman with a lot of experience with timing belt replacement. The timing belt and tensioner will need to be replaced at the same time, but at least then you know that it will not need to done again for 100,000 kms (60,000 miles).
