1997 Ram 2500 360 how to change water pump
Hello, to replace the water pump. First you want to remove the fan shroud
to get more room to work it's held on with 4 10mm bolts 2 on either side, to remove it
you'll need to at least disconnect the washer and coolant reservoirs. Once that's removed
remove the clutch fan followed by the serpentine belt. I then unbolt the a/c compressor and set it
aside. Remove the alternator followed by the alt/ac bracket. Then unbolt and remove the water pump. Installation is reverse of

any particular order for remove replace hoses/clamps?
Oh sorry I forgot you can removethe upper and lower radiator hoses once you get the alt/ac bracket off and you'll also be able to get the bypass hose off the top of the pump at that time as well. The heater hose on the drivers side
there in the pump can be removed at any time. If
you don't like a mess you can drain the coolant from the radiator before
you start other wise I put a drain pan under the lower radiator
hose before i remove it.
