24 to 40 american. Just remove the motor mount on that side... oh and the rear accessory bracket for one bolt that is covered by it. You could possibly just get a grinder in there and remove material off the bracket first. That would make it a lot easier.

Whoops, we posted at the same time.


$25-35 USD. And it is a challenge if you have not done a FWD waterpump before.

No, it'* not a terribly difficult job, but it'll take several hours, and as others noted, the engine mount has to be removed and there'* 1 bolt hidden by the accessory bracket. I think dealers in my area charge more than $400 for that job and quote the labor rate at 5 or 6 hours, and that'* about how long it took me to replace mine, with a few delays mixed-in.

I just replaced my pump last night.

2 choices from Autozone:
a) Reman with 1year warranty $21.59
b) New with lifetime warranty $26.49

Not much of a choice really

Little easier on the older NA cars. I had to remove the motor mount, but didnt have to remove any other brackets.

Draining the coolant was the only tricky part. I got creative and pumped the coolant out of the radiator with a little drill pump through the upper radiador hose opening. Couldn't go thru from the radiator cap due to the trans cooler. This allowed me to do the job without jacking up the car at all - no need to hassle with the radiator drain plug.

I would like to point out something missing from the FAQ http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ght=water+pump

It is WAY easier to loosen the 4 little pulley bolts with the serpentine belt still on.

So, are you in school in Minneapolis or elsewhere? If you're in the Metro area, I've got a heated garage ( becoming necessary lately) and required tools (done this on wifey'* car). Lemme know if I can help.
