Default Changing Water Pump S2 L67

Search didn't yield the results, checked manual..it wants 1/2 the car disassembled that'* not near the pump.

Who has swapped an S2 L67 waterpump?

I am wondering if any of the brackets and power steering pump are in the way. I took a quick look last night and it looks like it wants to jump out w/o removing anything but a belt.

I'm not sure about the extra belt that the L67 has but I had to remove the p/* torque-axis mount and that was pretty much it.

Power steering pump must be removed.

SC smooth idler pulley must be removed from the mounting bracket.

Alternator must be removed along with tensioner/coolant assembly along with the 2 plastic coolant elbows.

One bolt at the bottom of the WP is easier to remove from the wheel well.

The 4 long front cover bolts that also hold the WP on must be reinstalled with thread sealant.

Cheers,

Ok..thanks for the input guys.

Foghorn: you took off the tensioner/alt water assembly? eeek I didn't have to.

Pulled belts, and wp pulley.
Pull tire and inner plastic to take entire torque axis mount off (both pieces)
Pull sc idler pulley.
Pull water pump

Note..both tensioner pulleys and idler are plastic and look original. Changing
Waterpump has a little wiggle. Changing
Alternator is squeaking. Changing

Pull battery connection (only because you find the bearings in alternator are shot :( )
Doesn't everyone chat with BC buddies while working?

Where'* my NEBF mod buddies? I started early

Here'* all the "stuff" I had to take off


Mortehl..this should be back together before you get here at 7:30 tomorrow nite.
