installing a water pump on al 2004 nissan murano, I read on the romoval and instalation. I understand that you do not have to remove the timeing case cover?. Correct me if a ma wrong please. I removed the water pump cover that is infront of the caseing i see whare the change turns the water pump i need a diagram to show me the removal of the change tensioner assembly. I dont undesratnd whare it says "pull the lever down and relaease the stop tab" insert the plunger into the tensioner body by pressing the timing chain slack guide. And then it terlls me to: XXXXX XXXXX slack guiede pressed and hold the plunger in by pushing the stopper pin deeper through the lever and into the tensioner body hole. If I san see a picture diafragm that will take me set by step i will shure appreciate it.

i took the water pump cover off of the timeing case cover. I can see the water pump, i can feel the three scrwes with my fingers i belive the water pump should come out through that same area and i see the timeing chane that is along the side of the water pump.I also removed on the left hand side of the timeing cover which i belive is the change tensioner assembly.at the begining i thought i hade to remove the complete timening cover as i starting studing the removal of the cover i also seen that i hade to remove the bottom pan to take out the complete timeing case cover. but i know that just for the water pump removal that is going just a little to far. Which itruly belive that the removal of the water pump can be taken out with out having to take apart all the timeing case cover. I need a picture to follow and see clear what to do next along with explanation and guide. a.s.a.p. thank you.
Its a pretty complex pump. I have attached the steps to complete the job. Let me know if this answers your questions. Thanks
