Welcome me!

Hello!

My Fiance has an 09 with 29K miles on the clock. Everything is original, except for the broken cup holder (my bad).
And soon to be... a new water pump.. at 29K! Just saw a large puddle in the garage.. its leaking pretty good.

Welcome!

Water pump is common sadly. Good news is being na it is easier to service. If you're doing it yourself, you need a special tool to hold the timing chain in place but other than that, not bad.

I just realized you're in Wildomar. We are getting more and more locals here. Skersfan and I are very active with the San Diego Kappa group but we've been kicking around the idea of having an Inland Empire group as we are getting a bit bigger.

Perhaps it is time for another "Mod" day.

Here is the tool you need for the swap. other than this it is a pretty simple job really.

Also, here is a short write up RickyD did when he changed his. I didn't do mine (was cheaper to spend the $100 deductible on my extended warranty than it was to buy a $140 water pump) but it would be fairly easy to do on the NA. Pretty sure we could pull it off.

Certainly would love to do it. I don't know what his time frame is though if it is a bad leak.

And I have some oil to change this weekend too. Both my truck and my Girl's Veloster need it.

ok, I would like to try and do it this weekend. I have a ton of tools... like a lot. But not the holder. it doesn't look that bad, I could probably make one, but that cheap....might as well buy it. I am a jeep guy...
Anybody know of one local before I buy online?
Ill probably dive into it Saturday morning.
I am about 2 miles from Clinton Keith and the 15.

I think I have all the stuff I need. AutoZone ordered in the tool as a loaner. I'll probably tear into it early Sat morning.

Bairy,
I hear there are two different types of timing belt sprocket holders. I hate to be so vague, but I believe one works better than the other. You might want to do a little more research about the sprocket holder on this and the solstice forum. I believe the solstice forum has a water pump break down thread that talks about this as well. This is a bad weekend for me otherwise I'd head down there. This is THE job I REALLY want to learn how to do. Especially with the coolant bleed. Please keep us posted.

All done.
Started at 8:30 finished at 12:30? (Naked Gun, Naked gun 33-1/3, half of crocodile dundee) Netflix in the garage!

I replaced the o rings on the tube. Should've replaced the exhaust gasket, but i'm sure it'll be fine.

Here is a shot in the middle of the process:


I got the full circle tool from auto zone. I see its advantage over the half circle is the retention of the bolts if they fall out of the socket ... Even with some grease, working at that angle, they came out. The flanges on the bolt heads kept them from falling though.
My little inspection mirror and mini needle nose pliers came in handy there...

Lots of write-ups here and there online, but I just kept taking things off when they were in the way. Really not too hard. So far no leaks either.

Good for you and congrats! Seemed pretty easy. We were pretty close to that with the turbo build.
