I replaced the pump myslef and thought i'd do a little how to:

1. Buy a new pump ( I recommend GMB, never Aisin again)  and a new belt. Make sure the new pump set includes a gasket.

2. Take off the front bumper (a 10-15 minute job) as the access from the front is much easier than from underneath

That’s the view from the front

3. Drain the coolant liquid by taking off a water passage at the bottom of the radiator

4. Loosen the alternator. First loosen the screw at the bottom No. 2 and the one next to it, ie. No. 3, whose aim is to tighten the belt. So as to easily put a new belt, we need to push the alternator back, so we will need to loosen the bolt No. 1 too and then push the alternator

5. Undo the 5 bolts mounting the pump. Some more coolant will pour out.

6. Fit a new pump. Make sure you put the gasket the way the old one was fitted. My old gasket came off with the pump, but you need to fit the new gasket straight to the engine. However, as I said, take a closer look at the way the gasket was fitted:

This little tail which I pointed in the photo above goes to a specially marked slot in the engine, which I marked below:

7. We fit a new pump, make sure you don’t confuse the bolts, as there are two lengths

8. We put on a new belt, tighten it by bolt No 3 and then fit it hard by bolts No. 1 and 2.  

9. We refill the coolant through the hole with the metal cup, and then, the rest,  through the other one

It means, fill up through the radiator first then fill up the expansion bottle to the required amount.

Changing the water pump is one of the easiest DIY jobs you can do.

Thanks very much for this and all your other videos too. I've certainly found them useful and interesting.

Personally, I generally prefer written+photo how-tos (perhaps with a video to support them) because I find them much easier and quicker to navigate. With a written one, I can easily just skip to the bit that I want to read rather than having to search for it in a video. I can also print them out and take them to the garage with me. However, sometimes seeing things on a video is definitely the best way.

Thanks, you're right, Enjay. Yet I have an impression that the today's world can't live without FB and YT, thus I thought it might be useful to make YT How-Tos. People around the globe can find them easily and they will not necsessarily find this bug club
