Q: 6 bolts replacing waterpump. 1 bolt is 2x as long as others. Is this right and if so where does the long bolt go?

asked by on

I am replacing a waterpump in a nissan 1999 2WD pathfinder. There are 6 bolts. 4 are similar in length. 1 has a head that allows for attaching timing guard. 1 is twice as long as the others. Is this right? And if so, which hole does the 2X bolt go?

My car has 140000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
