How do I replace the moter belt


Hi

Use screwdrivers to remove the screws in the rear access panel of the washer and then pull off the panel.Locate the pump coupling, which is the rubber part that connects the motor to the water pump, and unscrew the clamps securing it to the motor. Once the coupling is removed, tension is removed from the belt.Slide the belt off of the pulley assemblies and slide the new belt in its stead. Reattach the coupling with the mounting clamps and check the tension on the belt. You should be able to wiggle the belt a bit, but not more than an inch or so.Close the access panel and turn on the machine. Run it through a cycle while observing it to see how it handles the belt change.

  3. remove the surpentine fan belt, note; make a diagram of the belt routing so belt will go back on the right way.
  4. remove the bolts you loosened on the pump pulley, use a pry bar to pry engine back to have enough room to remove the waterpump pulley.
  5. remove the bolts holding waterpump, you will want a pan under the van to catch coolant when waterpump is removed,
  6. remove the pump and clean old gasket off the block and install new pump,
  7. reverse to install new pump and fill system with coolant allow engine to run until thremostat opens,hope this is helpful. heres a few diagrams of the waterpump and the cover and the belt routing, good luck and hope this is helpful.

WARNING
This procedure requires the removal of the timing belt. This is an extensive procedure requiring precision work, particularly at assembly. For more information, refer to Timing Belt Removal and Installation. Do not attempt to remove the belt without consulting the procedure; extreme engine damage may occur.

  1. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the timing belt. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): Timing Belt Removal and Installation.
  3. Remove the idler pulley.
  4. Remove the thermostat.
  5. Disconnect the oil cooler hose from the pump.
  6. Remove the seven bolts and the tension spring bracket and then remove the water pump. To install:
  7. Clean all parts well. It is good practice to carefully clean all threaded openings, especially those exposed to coolant to remove rust and scale so at assembly, an accurate torque reading is obtained. This is important since gasketless applications like this depend on even clamp loads from the fasteners to avoid distortion and leaks. Remove any old sealer (Toyota calls it packing) from the pump and mounting area of the engine. Keep oil off the mating areas.
  8. Apply Formed In Place Gasket (FIPG) sealer to the pump-to-block mating surface and then tighten the bolts marked A in the illustration to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm). Tighten those marked B to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm). NOTE: The parts must be installed within 5 minutes of application of the sealant. Otherwise you must remove and reapply the sealer.
  9. Connect the oil cooler hose.
  10. Install the thermostat with a new gasket.
  11. Install the idler pulley.
  12. Install the timing belt.
  13. Install the drive belts and adjust the tension.
  14. Refill the cooling system and check for leaks.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. If equipped with an air conditioning compressor or power steering pump drive belts, it may be necessary to loosen the adjusting bolt, remove the drive belt(s) and move the component(s) out of the way.
  4. Remove the fluid coupling with the fan and water pump pulley.
  5. Remove the water pump. To install:
  6. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces.
  7. Install the replacement water pump using a new gasket.
  8. Install the water pump pulley and fluid coupling with the fan.
  9. Install the removed engine drive belts.

Changing water pump 2000 ford focus


Changing a water pump is pretty basic. Since the coolant system is a closed system you only need to be concerned with that system. For instance you since you have to mess around with it anyway you might as well change the thermostat and flush the coolant system. Make sure your radiator hoses are in good shape and that's about it.
If you have basic mechanical skills and tools you will have no problem replacing a water pump.


As far as information with the actual replacement there are a number of experts here including myself that could explain how to do it.
However no matter how good our explanations are it just can't compare to a good repair manual.
A repair manual for your car at Auto Zone would likely cost between $12 and $15. It is a great investment if you are going to keep your car for any length of time. When you sell, it shows the buyer you took the time to maintain and repair it right.
I personally like Haynes Manuals.
I hope this helps.
