Water Pump Pulley Replacement

Loosen the four water pump pulley retaining bolts, using the accessory belt tension to keep the pulley from turning.
Loosen the alternator belt adjuster jack screw and remove the alternator belt.
Using a 1/2" breaker bar rotate the automatic tensioner down and to the left. Remove the accessory drive belt.
Remove the two nuts and single bolt retaining the automatic belt tensioner to the engine and remove the assembly.
Remove the four water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley from the vehicle. NOTE: On some vehicles the pulley will not have enough clearance to facilitate removal from the vehicle. In this case, allow the pulley to remain on the hub after the bolts have been removed.
Remove the heater hose from the water pump.
