I tried to replace the water pump by myself. Mine is 93, SE. 3.8L,
It'* hard to remove the motor mounting bolt. I don't even know how to remove the bolt.
There was pretty small rooom to do a job.
Do I have to remove the motor mounting bolt anyway? for my SE, not supercharged Bonneville?
Please help me. Midas guy damn smiled at me as calling $213 for the replacement.
I bought already the water pump, but don't know simply how to replace it.
Is it really easy or not for my bonny?.. I found the doc from the machanic forum, but it'* not useful. it was almost the same as my chilton'* book.
Let me know please your Know-how.
