Water pump

Recommended Posts

looks like the water pump is knackered, anyone changed one in situ or is it an engine out job?

Yes, and No respectively.

Can be done as is, easier if you dislocate engine and gearbox mounts, slide engine back a fraction and tip it up at the front.

There is a bolt that is in line with the edge of a cam sprocket, it will come out as you move the pump out, but replace it with a cap head bolt for ease.

It's a lot easier with the engine out, but if you have no other reason to remove the engine, do it in situ.

Done it in situ. You will need to cut a small section out of the lip that surrounds the engine in order to get the pump out. It's a tricky job but can be done! Will try and get a pic up.

Here's the pic of the section that I was told needs to be removed. It was already cut out when I got the car but the process was confirmed by a well know specialist.
