Engine Cooling problem
1997 Mercury Cougar 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 144000 miles
Attempting to remove water pump.
Needing to remove power steering bracket from WP.
Appears to have extremely large Hex type set screw or bolt that holds pulley on. I have tried securing pulley and using breaker bar to loosen this bolt in both directions. My question is: How does this pulley come off? If I use a puller on it, how would I ever press it back on? It would seem that this center bolt should come off and then the pulley slides off, then the bracket comes off, and then I can remove the WP. I am at a stand still until I know for sure the proper removal method.
The pulley is plastic, so I can not use heat on it.
have the same problem?
