no year,, now how can I get the pages for you lacking the year.
(that be the first question or VIN)
Guessing year 2000 for you.
ah the 2.5L, and you dont have the bookhttps://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/1194-2002-vitara-grand-vitara-service-manual.aspx
do i need.?
well all the steps are in the FSM and here vast times.
here we go 1 more time.
the pump on this engine the H25 it is, is not most hard of most.
really the first question is how to get to it.
page 22 answers that, (and page 4)
to remove front cover , the valve covers bolt to it so...http://www.fixkick.com/engine/2.5L%202004%20Tracker/25L-2004-engine.pdf
you can maybe take off that front cover with the VC in place bolts on front VC off,
but how would you put it back> sandwiched between pan and VC it is.TIGHT.
so then it leaks, like made. sure would.
4 lousy bucks to read the manual (wild guess on year)https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/10218-2000-vitara-grand-vitara-service-manual.aspx
read all steps.? im not typing all 50 steps. sorry.
and then ask questions, and win
its not trival doing this job at all, getting to not leak is hard.
takes planning and patience.
step 4 (fsm) water pump.section service.
remove chain cover. turn to page for that and it states.
page 1d-17 (chain access & pump)
step 4, remove throttle body, intake man. (see pages there)
step 5: remove cylinder head covers (VC) valve covers.
6: fan off
7: rad off
8: thermostat cap off,
9: displace (move) p/s pump and compressor. tie backs.
10:drain oil (water was gone back in pump section.
11:remove oil pan, some skip this step. (ask why)
the photos showing why all this is necessary?, look at each photo. in the pdf above.
12 remove crank pulley with tool
13: ckp off.
14: cover off , Chain cover off.
i have the FSM in paper, and PDF.
so... can answer all steps and more.
id say, one of the 2 things need to be off
VC or pan.
see why? (the rule of sandwich and sealing it up after)
id bet the pan off, is not in the cards,,,,,
leaving VC off x2.
but the book is clear. and many folks do leave the pan on,
but try to keep the antifreeze out of the pan, using plastic sheets or? I like to do rag stuffing here., tight.... (AF on oil are nasty when mixed)
see page 22 above... its very clear ...
