I have a 2004 VLX Deluxe and I just use a 17mm closed end wrench with the bike standing straight up. Get someone to hold the bike up for you while you remove it and then lay it over on the kickstand to drain more completely. Do the oil filter with it straight up too for more clearance.

If you need a little more under clearance park the bike on a few pieces of 2x6 cut with a saw set at 45%. Use a scrap in the right position for the kickstand too.

1999 2.3 supercharged mazda millenia s; need user/repair manual and help fixing/replacing water pump


Hello, Here are the steps for removing and reinstalling your water pump.
Removal
  1. Disconnect the positive battery cable.
  2. Put a drain pan under the radiator and drain the coolant. Drain the coolant out via the drain plug on the radiator.
  3. When drained close the drain plug.
  4. Put another drain pan under the timing belt cover.
  5. Now you need to remove the timing belt cover.
  6. Use a ratchet and remove all the bolts to the time belt cover.
  7. Remove timing belt cover.
  8. When you get the cover off remove the timing belt.
  9. ***NOTE*** due to the time, labor and potential cost of replacing the water pump and the fact that the timing belt is right there it is recommend to put a new timing belt on during the installation process.
  10. Remove the bolts that secure the coolant inlet pipe with a ratchet.
  11. Remove the pipe and gasket.
  12. Remove the belt and idler pulley attached to the water pump. Don't get and coolant or grease on it.
  13. Now you need to remove the mounting bolts from the water pump with a ratchet.
  14. Remove the pump.
  15. Inspect the seating of the gasket real well.
  16. Remove all the crud off it with a lint free rag, I repeat lint free rag.
Now to install the new water pump
  1. Install the new water pump with the new gaskets provided. Never reuse the old gaskets.
  2. Install mounting bolts and torque them at 14-18 foot pounds.
  3. There is a bolt that will connect the alternator bracket to the water pump that needs to be torqued at 23-38 foot-pounds.
  4. Reinstall the idler pulleys and tighten down with your ratchet.
  5. Replace the gasket for the coolant intake pipe with the new gasket.
  6. Now torque the remaining bolts to 14-18 foot pounds.
  7. Slide the [hopefully new] timing belt back.
  8. Reattach the timing covers.
  9. Tighten them bolts with your ratchet.
  10. Use a mix of 50% water and 50% antifreeze and fill up the radiator and overfill.
  11. Squeeze the radiator hoses a few times to get the air out of the hoses.
  12. Hook your battery back up.
  13. Start the car and let it heat up to full running temperature, with the heat on and check for leaks.
  14. Now top off the coolant level again.
  15. Go for a short drive.
  16. Reinspect for leak.
  17. End of job.
Regards, Tony

Installation for a oil filter adapter gasket


OK, I just did this on a 2003 Expedition. Really not that hard at all - took me about 1.5 hours.
You'll need a new gasket ($12.00 at AutoZone), a jug of Antifreeze, a drain pan (large enough to hold all of the coolant - roughly 3-4 gallons, another pan for the oil). A ratchet with a 4 inch extension and a U-joint(knuckle or swivel socket). A 1/2 in. socket for the adapter, and a 3/4" wrench for the radiator drain plug.
First, I pulled the car up on a pair of ramps - remember, you'll have to drain the oil and coolant before you remove the adapter. The incline of the ramps does not hinder any draining of the fluids. Also, remover the oil filter - might as well change your oil while you're doing this just in case the coolant and oil have mixed due to the leaking gasket. Wipe everything down real good, I'm sure you'll have alot of resudual oil splattered everywhere. You want it clean so that when you're done, you'll know the problem is solved vs. not being able to tell because of all the (old) oil.
OK, so the oil is drained, plug replaced, and the oil filter is removed. Now, drain the coolant. The plu is very easy to find, on the fron, left of the (bottom) radiator. Use the 3/4" wrench or adjustable to open the valve. There is a place to attach a 3/8" hose but I just let mine gravity feed into a pan - Open the coolant resevoir lid on top of the engine to vent and allow it to drain faster. This should take about 20 mins to drain.
Tighten the coolant valve (don't overtorque)
Now, slide back to the filter adapter - Unplug the electrical connector (push IN with a screwdriver and pull out), next, you'll need to take the bottom hose off the adapter. Use a pair of channel locks or pliera to squeeze the clamp in to allow slack in the hose to slide off - it's tight, so take your time! You don't have to take the top hose off.
TIP: stuff a small rag in the hose you just took off, it'll keep antifreeze from dripping on you while you're under it - remember to take it out!!!
I started with the hardest bolt first - the one closet to the front, you'll know it when you see it. To get this loose, you'll need the U-joint on 1/2" socket and an extension. There are 4 bolts total, not that hard, just takes a little time.
Once the bolts are out , it's easy to pry down on the FA to remove the gasket. Simply slide in the new one (it'll only go one way, don't worry about putting in backwards or upside down). Put one bolt in the fron and back and handtighten the bolts, this will start lining up the holes. Next install the other 2 bolts, handtighten each a little at a time so the gasket will center itself. Once it's seated, tighten the 4 bolts - not too tight, it's aluminum remember! Plug the elec connector back in.
The gasket I removed didn't really show any signs of deterioration or anything.
Now you need to reinstall a new oil filter and top the oil off. Also, refill the coolant - the directions are on the back of the jug.
My biggest tips for this job are: Have a few towels/rags around - you'll spill oil and coolant, Capture and dispose of the coolant/oil properly - remember, pets love antifreeze, but it'll kill 'em. Again, clean all of the residual off the frame, oil pan, hoses - that way you can tell if the job worked, or if the leak is in another area.
Good Luck - you can do it!

Check this procedure to REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(1.8L and 1.9L Engines)

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place fender covers on the aprons.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove the right and left-hand front splash shields.
  5. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the radiator.
  6. If equipped with an automatic transaxle, disconnect the lower oil cooler line from the radiator. Remove the oil cooler line brackets from the bottom of the radiator.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. If equipped with an automatic transaxle and air conditioning, remove the seal located between the radiator and the fan shroud.
  9. If equipped with an automatic transaxle, remove the upper oil cooler line from the radiator.
  10. If equipped with the 1.8L engine, remove the resonance duct from the radiator mounts.
  11. Unplug the cooling fan motor electrical connector and the cooling fan thermoswitch electrical connector.
  12. If necessary, remove the cooling fan thermoswitch for clearance.
  13. Remove the three fan shroud attaching bolts and remove the shroud assembly by pulling it straight up.
  14. On some 1.9L engines equipped with A/C, remove the upper radiator air deflector from the radiator and set it aside.
  15. Remove the upper radiator hose and the two upper radiator mounts.
  16. If equipped, remove the fluid cooler tube bracket bolts and coolant overflow hose from the radiator.
  17. Remove the radiator from the engine compartment by lifting it straight up.


2.0L Engine
(1997 MODELS)
  1. Remove the fan motor, blade and shroud assembly.
