Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 7 years ago.

Replacing the water pump is straight forward on these. You need to first remove the belt, then find the bolts around the outside of the water pump. Take those out, remove the pump, clean the gasket surface and replace the gasket and install the pump.

i've removed the bolts except for one last one that is behind the pulley of the power steering pump how do i remove that?
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 7 years ago.
There is a tool that attaches to the center of the pulley and it is pulled off. The same tool often will also install the pulley as well, unless your pulley has several holes in it. If so, then the holes will line up with hole one at a time. You can then remove the bolts and slide the pump out of the way.

Are you using the power steering pulley puller?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
no 3/8 allen key... could i rent one from the auto parts store or just remove the power steering pup quicker
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 7 years ago.
You can likely rent at any part store. I believe you cannot remove the pump with the pulley on.
