REMOVAL
The water pump on all models can be replaced without discharging the air conditioning system.

WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE PRESSURE CAP WITH THE SYSTEM HOT AND UNDER PRESSURE BECAUSE SERIOUS BURNS FROM COOLANT CAN OCCUR.

NOTE: It is normal for the water pump to weep a small amount of coolant from the weep hole (black stain on water pump body). Do not replace the water pump if this condition exists. Replace the water pump if a heavy deposit or a steady flow of engine coolant is evident on water pump body from the weep hole (shaft seal failure). Be sure to perform a thorough analysis before replacing water pump.

  1. Drain cooling system.
  2. Remove accessory drive belts.
  3. The water pump is driven by the timing belt. Refer to Timing Belt for component removal to provide access to water pump.
