How to replace an auxiliary water pump?

Repair of the auxiliary water pump is not reasonable because its cleaning and replacement of brushes are not always effective.

In case of defect signs the component is to be immediately replaced. Replacement can be performed on your own if you have appropriate skills and a basic tool kit. Before starting component replacement on a car you should study the manual. The actions sequence can differ for cars of different models.

In general, the algorithm of auxiliary coolant pump replacement is the following:

  1. Drain coolant into a reservoir prepared in advance.
  2. Disconnect the pump power connector.
  3. Loosen clamp fixations and remove them from the pump.
  4. Demount the defective pump and install a new component.
  5. Assemble everything in the reverse order and then top up the antifreeze.
  6. Check operation of the new device for presence of coolant leakage.

It is recommended to perform water pump replacement at a service station.
Always replace the water pump with the rollers and belts.
