Default Water Pump Replacement

Hi

I need to change a water pump on a 1992 Bonneville SE (Vin L). Do I need to remove the engine mount?
Any info or instructions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi...welcome..

The procedure will basically follow the procedure listed in Techinfo for the supercharged engine.

Only thing that changes is the supercharger on top.

And yes..I believe you do need to support the engine and remove the mount.

yup, remove the center bolt of the mount, lift the engine by the front lift point until the PS touches the STB and remove both halves.

Simple once you know how to do it.

Dame.. you mean the one bolt that holds the center of the TA mount or the center bolt on the block?

yeppers that'* what he means. I had mine go out while on the back roads of Indiana(I was lost) The next day I figure I'd just replace it on the side of the road......until I saw what had to be done. If you have the time and a little knowledge of the car I'd say fix it yourself. But if you have a trusted mechanic I'd take it there. It cost me about $260 I believe, but that'* been 2 years back.

I actually did this myself recently.

I placed a brick on end on top of a floor jack and lifted the engine by pushing up on the engine right next tot the oil pan. Worked like a charm.

The comment about the only engine difference being the supercharger on top isn't really accurate. In the context of water pump replacement, the most notable difference is that the accessory bracket on the supercharged engine is different (it'* much larger) and that bracket is extra work to remove on the supercharged engine, so there'* less work involved in replacing the water pump on the normally aspirated version of the engine.

Maybe it'* Alzheimer'* this morning....or it could be just ignorance/stupidity

What is "TA"?

Looks like I'm gonna have to have this done or do it myself. Dripping a lot from the bottom of the crank pully, I had a stream on my Garage floor longer than the car last weekend. That fluid seemed clear, but oily. Just now figured out the coolant leak. After getting the car up on jack stands and busting a wheel stud off.

It'* off to the dealer'* parts department for me.

Jason.

Torque Axis. Pretty name for the upper passenger side mount. The one that spiders over the water pump.
