you're talking about the water pump? just replace the whole thing. They're dirt cheap, and here is the techinfo procedure

since yours isn't supercharged you wont have to remove the SC belt and things obviously... i also did mine without removing the motor mount like techinfo says. maybe its different on an ssei

I think its only necessary to remove the motor mount if you are replacing the belt. I did mine a while back and did not remove the mount. Just push the belt out of the way..but make sure you make a little drawing of where it goes first..i know it sounds dumb but its deceptively confusing...

im sure he talking about the idler or tensioner here

but i would assume he can discern the WP pulley from any other

but perhaps not ?

dont know

and regarding the belt and engine mount info


false

the engine mount need not be removed to remove the belt


only the bolt and its spacer at the front bottom by the crank balancer needs to be pulled
grind one end of the spacer down a little to shorten its length a little bit to get the spacer back in easily

right angle grinder or bench grinder


getting ready to do the belt on my 92 really soon

just did two others recently

common deal

all you have to do is remove the inner wheel tub splash shield(the retarded round post push pull pin flat **** style clips almost always break so i use a self tapping sheemetal screw to reinstall the top of the shield


and turn the wheel all the way to the right

simple
