is #9, I went to auto parts store and bought it; is it a 3.5mm in diameter... because that'* the one I got. (89006).

Alsot I have to remove the mount and the power steering pulley in order to get to the screw behind the pulley right?

Is there another way.?

you don't remove the ps pulley, you remove the ps pump (2 bolts accessed through the holes in the ps pulley.

No..but when you let the pump down..be gentle..it'll be leaning on your oil pressure sensor. It'* a piece of cake. Two 13mm bolts hold it on to the block at 12 and 6 o'clock. You undo them and gently lay it right there. Then the motormount bracket bolt is accessible.

also, listen to me now and question me later.....

Replace the water pump while the bracket is off!!!
the $40 extra you spend is worth 10x that when it goes out a month later and you hve to do the whole thing over again.

you do not unhook the ps pump from the hoses, just set the pump assembly to the side.

Got it!!!!

What a pain to take that motor mount bracket..husssssh!!

Thank you everyone..

I have to suggest to remove the ignition coil and super charge belt tensioner... cuz the motor mount bracket won't let you unscrew the idler pulley i'm replacing.

Thank you guys.
