My car made a noise while I was in a parking lot looking for a open stall. I went to turn and the steering was very difficult. I parked where a tow vehicle could access my car if need be and shut the engine off. Got out of my car and seen the front right side leaking a puddle. It had a sweet smell of antifreeze.
When my husband arrived he seen the resevor for the antifreeze was empty. He assumes it's the water pump.
How can he replace it? I don't want him trying to access it in a manner he shouldn't with all the plastic clips and etc.
Can you send me step by step replacement guide?
What else usually needs replacing when these go bad?
