Take off the PS pump and move it aside, without removing any PS lines. Either the PS pump or its mounting bracket may need to be loosened and set aside.

SOURCE: Water pump removal on a 1996 Buick Riviera (supercharged)

there are two bolts that hold the power steering pump in place that are accesable through the holes in the pulley. If you use a 6" extension and a 1/2" socket you can reach them. this will allow the pump to be removed and hang by the hoses and be out of the way. I was told also to inspect the cam sensor while it is apart because you have to remove the water pump in order to get to it.

SOURCE: I almost have the water

To remove the pulley wheel from the power steering pump you typically have to remove 3 bolts but to get to those 3 bolts you have to use a socket and go through the holes on the pulley itself.

You need to poke a small extension with a 13mm socket through the holes in the power steering pulley, undo it, and slide it back.

SOURCE: replacing water pump on 2002

I haven't worked on the newer buicks but I play with alot of chevrolets and depending on the setup it maybe easier to pull the power steering pump bolts and lay it off to the side than it will be to pull the pulley of and press it back on. If you want to pull the pulley you will need a universal pulley puller available at most part stores, if the pulley has bolts in it you will remove the bolts and the puller will have bolts that will slide into the existing holes allowing you to remove the pulley.

How to change a water pump on 99 buick regal 3.8 L


You need to release the tension on the serpentine belt first. Special tools are available to do this. Take out the bolts that hold the pulley on the pump.Once this is done then you can start removing the bolts that hold the water pump on. They are small diameter bolts so not much pressure is needed to turn them. Watch the length of each bolt removed and note which hole it came from. If the pump doesn't fall off after the last bolt is removed, tap it with a rubber mallet. Now scrape the old gasket from the engine. Be careful not to gouge the metal and do not leave any material behind on the engine. When installing the new gasket put a couple of bolts on the new pump to use as a guide when putting the new pump back on the engine. Tighten all the bolts, put the pulley back on the pump and put the serpentine belt back.

Where is the horn located on a 2007 Buick LaCrosse


Horns on most late model GM cars are behind or below the headlight. Many of these cars have headlight that are very easy to remove. The are held in place with plastic slides.... you pull the slide or release (there are usually 2) and the headlight assembly will come out of the body. Then you can look for the horn.

How do i fix my mitsubishi fto water pump


Remove the bolt for the crank pulley. Use a gear puller the remove the pulley. If you don't have an impact gun, you have to remove the starter . So you can hold the flywheel/crank shaft from moving as you remove the bolt.

I WANT TO CHANGE MY CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR, BUT CAN,T FIND IT?


the crankshaft sensor is located right behind the harmonic balancer mounted on the timing cover-.on the 3.8 , The camshaft position sensor is located behind the water pump pulley on the left side of the engine block. it has a 3 wire connector. you have to remove serpintine belt and water pump pulley to access it.I believe there is ( 4-8mm bolts) to remove. ON THE 3.1 IT IS UNDER POWER STEERING PUMP ON BELT SIDE. REMOVE THE BELT THEN REMOVE AND SET STEERING PUMP TO THE SIDE, BUT DO NOT REMOVE ANY POWER STEERING HOSES FROM IT. have a good day ! if its a differant engine, just repost.

2007 Buick Lacrosse low beam headlights both went out at once. Doesn't appear to be the bulb. Also checked the fuses under the hood and those both appear OK too.


The relay under the hood may have gone out. We had the same problem on our 2007 Buick LaCrosse CX. The bulbs were fine, high beams worked, all turn signals and everything except the low beams turned on. Turns out the relay had gone bad.

Water pump broke how much to fix


That depends on whether or not you're going to do the repair yourself. A new pump will run you about $40 or so and an hour or so of your time. I would guess a repair at a delaer or repair shop would run several hundred dollars, $300-$400?

The replacement is rather simple with the exception of one bolt being behind the power steering pump pulley. You'll have to remove two of the power steering pump bolts and rotate it out of the way to give you the clearance to get the last water pump bolt out. Make sure you get a new gasket and clean the old gasket off completely.
