  4. Accessory drive belt.
  5. Water pump from vehicle.
  6. Water pump gasket and discard.
  7. Clean water pump and engine front cover sealing surfaces.

INSTALL OR CONNECT

  1. New gasket on water pump cover studs.
  2. Water pump and tighten all pump mounting bolts to the torque specifications.
  3. Water pump pulley; install bolts finger-tight.
  4. Accessory drive belt and tighten pump pulley bolts to 30 Nm (22 lb ft) . Use accessory drive belt drag to keep pulley from moving when tightening pulley bolts. If additional drag is needed, attach a 1/2 inch breaker bar to the belt tensioner and apply a load to the belt.
  5. Coolant recovery tank.
  6. Refill coolant.
