I can't access the last bolt on the water pump to my 1991 Dodge Shadow.

It's a 2.2 liter..auto.. ac.. etc.

Manuals says to pull the hoses (done), the ac compressor (done), belt (done), wiring (done), alternator (done)...
Then it says to pull off the water pump... one problem. There is a large mount on the engine than connects directly
to the motor mount. Of course the last bolt on the top of the water pump is behind that. No way to get in there
with wrench, socket or anything else. Do I actually have to lift the engine and remove part of the motor mount to access the stinkin' water pump in this thing? This is ridiculous!

thx for any help, tricks that you know of. Much appreciated.

Your probably trying to separate it at the wrong place.

Your probably trying to separate it at the wrong place. NOPE.. you see that top bolt on the left top portion of the water pump? What this DOESN'T show you is the large piece bolted to the motor in front of it. You cannot access that top bolt. The piece in front of the water pump supports the engine!

If your talking about the A/C compressor bracket, that has to come off too.
