Buick Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.
Use a punch and a hammer to knock it loose, let me know how it goes. Thanks.
Have you tried to pound it down? Once it is loose you should be able to pull it out with hand. I'm assuming you are using at least a 3lb hammer?
That is Justanswer, sorry about that. It is annoying to me too and I wish they would stop pushing it so hard.
Can you take a couple pictures for me? There is a little notch on top side of water pump you should be able to pry on.
Take a couple pictures for me of what you are dealing with, it has been awhile since I've had to work on this exact vehicle. Thanks.
Yes, that is the tab you should be able to pry on.
Are you trying to remove part that connects to engine or part that connects to frame? Or are you trying to separate the two parts?
Manual says to use engine lift to pull up on engine, if you don't have a engine lift you can use a jack on bottom side of engine to lift it up. Let me know if you have tried either of those, sorry to hear about friend. Let me know, thanks.
Good to hear you were able to separate the two parts, let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.
I think I misunderstood what you said. You should leave all the bolts in place other then the 1 bolt that connects the two pieces, then jack up engine which should separate them. Let me know how it goes, thanks.
No problem, another option would be to use a 2x4 cut to length so you can jack up engine directly on mount. Let me know how it turns out, thanks.
They are actually against us talking outside of the website but you can come back and reply to this link the same way you are now at any time without additional fees so make sure to keep me updated. Thanks.
Feel free to send me some pictures or a short video if you keep ending up running into problems. Thanks.
You can upload picture to another website such as facebook or whatever site you use then send me a link. Otherwise there should be a paperclip icon you can click to upload photos.
There isn't enough room to remove the side of mount that is attached to engine right now? Then with that side removed you should have enough room to access side connected to frame.
One of the pictures cam through, can you show me some pictures of the bolt/stud you are still trying to remove?
You need to upload them separately. I'm going to be getting offline here soon.
I don't think stud needs to be removed, have you tried to remove water pump without removing stud?
Nevermind, pump has obviously been removed. Why are you trying to remove stud?
It took me a second to realize water pump is already removed, must be getting late. Why are you trying to remove the stud? It seem like you are ready to put water pump back on, install mount, and be good to go?
I'm happy to hear it was figured out and you were able to get it removed. I'm getting offline, let me know how it turns out or if you need anything. Thanks again and have a good night.
