ok therefore im below replacing the waterpump on my mk1 9a 16v. I take the end the waterpump and also then try to acquire the 3 hex socket bolts hold the sheave on the old waterpump.all i have actually are the L shaped hex "wrenches" for this reason i put 2 in, one to organize it therefore it doesnt move and also the other i hit it through a hammer for much more force but the wrench one of two people just drops off or hits my face:banghead:i cant obtain anywhere, they room so tight and also the sheave keeps top top slipping once i shot to turn the bolts!!! would certainly those hand hex wrenches (T-shaped) be great enough or would i require something else?o ya the pulley is mk3 style (uses serpentine belt) indigenous a serp belt conversion. If that makes any difference.if ns can obtain those bolts off id be done this in one more 2 hrs max... Sighthanks in advance
THere is a special tool made to host that so friend can get the bolts loose, and also later, tight again. You need a ratchet, an adapter, and also the right size apex. The apex and also adapter space also easily accessible at auto part stores choose Advance.Without the special tool, friend might shot using either a strap wrench, or sacrifice an old serpentine belt, use vice grips to clamp down on the belt to host it still, and also loosen the bolts v the ratchet.
I generally wedge a flat head screw driver between the bolt and also the column of the water pump to organize it, i loosen every 3, gotta relocate the screw driver for the last bolt obv.. Then just remove themPS acquire yourself a collection of allen bits because that a 3/8 ratchet.. Those l shaped keys are rubbish for tight bolts
