Water pump replacement on 1999 3.8
I have removed all of the bolts that secure the water pump, but I have run into a couple of problems.
1st, the water inlet tube is in the way. I was able to pull it loose from the water pump but it is preventing me from removing it. It will not raise up high enough because of another part that is above it, looks like it may be part of the A/C system.
2nd, a pipe from the A/C system is directly in front of the water pump, and looks as if it will be in the way as well once I get around the issue with the water inlet tube.
Your help is much appreciated! I can't afford a mechanic. This looked like a pretty simple water pump swap until I ran into these problems.
