You should be more clear in your question. If you are sure that all bolts and belts are removed, it might be simply stuck because of the gasket sealant. Use a little brute force. Notice I said a little. No hammers, simply arm strength.

    For removal? The only tools you should need for removal involve the bolts. Have you removed the timing belt and all other belts? Then the waterpump should pull off.

I'm having problems unbolting the fan hub from the waterpump

I find that If i place a flat bladed screw driver under the nut next to the one I wish to undo and lay it across the hub I have an effective bar with which to hold the hub as I undo the bolts/nuts. Undo 1 and then move onto the next one and repeat the process.

    How to install window regulator mitsubishi galant

    FOr the most part window regulators just unbolt and unplug. I'd suggest you go to a junkyard that lets you pull your own parts and then do it. Once you have pulled the replacement part you will know everything you need to know. Basics are you pull the door panel. Next you separate the glasss from the regulator unit. Now unbolt the regulator. Wedge glass up in the door and angle the regulator out of the opening
