Q: how to take the bottom bolt off the water pump?

asked by on

There is one bolt that we cannot figure out how to get to it to get it out. It is at the bottom of the water pump. It is a 3800 series 2 supercharged.

My car has 136000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The power steering lower bolt should be removed and the power steering swung out of the way. Then, using a 10mm swivel socket you can get the back bottom water pump bolts out without removing the front engine mount bracket.
