DIY Crank Shaft Pulley
Step 3


Now it's time to remove the oil pump cover. There are 8-10mm bolts and 2-12mm bolts.

For the 2.1 owners, you will have to remove the crank shaft sensor as well. I'm not sure how it is attached since I have never worked on that car before.

Getting to the bolts proved to be more difficult than I thought. I was tearing my arms up trying to reach the bolts.
So I found an easier way to get to the bolts!

The oil pump cover is held on with 2 studs. Use a large screwdriver to pry it off. Just be careful not to gouge the cover.

Now tap out the crankseal and pull off the o-ring gasket.


At this point you can replace the waterpump and alternator if you bought the parts.
Replacing the waterpump is just a matter of unbolting it, cleaning the gasket surfaces and replacing it.

Replacing the alternator bushings is done by removing the alternator. You will probably have to disconnect the heater core hoses. The bolt holding the alternator arm on is a 17mm bolt. The real trick is that it is too long to be removed! You need to swivel the whole bracket and alternator to allow the bolt to be removed. To do this you need to remove two of the alternator bracket bolts, and then by holding onto the 17mm bolt, you twist it counter-clockwise until the bolt can be removed.

If you didn't remove the A/C mounting bracket, you will have to do it before you can get to the alternator mount.
Once the long bolt comes out, the alternator will come out from the top.
