Have taken all the bolts off the pump I can see. In the manual they talk about taking off the thermostat housing but cam't see why it needs to be done. Does it? Because at this time I am stumped as the pump does not want to come out. Should it not come out when pulled on?

Thanks

That pump may be stuck. Is it the original pump? If you got all the bolts out then it should come right out.

Well I saw a manual that one guy said to go to on line and it isn't the same as my car. There was 3 bolts in a triangle then one larger bolt. Cannot see any others but maybe I missed one. Will check again. DO I have to remove the thermostat housing?

Thanks
