Removal
Drain cooling system. Remove accessory belts. Remove idler bracket from engine. Disconnect heater hose at water pump. Remove water pump pulley bolts. Pulley will remain loose on hub due to insufficient clearance.
On Probe model, remove 3 water pump mounting bolts. See Fig. 7 . On Sable and Taurus, remove 11 water pump mounting bolts. See Fig. 8 . On all models, lift water pump assembly up and out of vehicle.

Installation
Lightly oil all bolt and stud threads before installation, EXCEPT specified bolt on Sable and Taurus that requires sealant. See Fig. 8 . Sealant is necessary to prevent coolant leaks. Apply Contact Adhesive (D7AZ-19B508-A) to new gasket and position on water pump.
Install water pump and pulley as an assembly. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure. Tighten bolts and nuts to specifications. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS at end of article. Fill cooling system with Ford Cooling System Fluid (E2FZ-19549-A) only. Leak check system.
