How to remove water pump?

10-26-2004, 11:41 AM
My son has a 1996 Mystique, it has been heating lately. We replaced the thermostat and bled the air out, but that didn't help. I am now replacing the water pump. I have removed everything, including the water pump mounting bolts. The problem is the radiator hose, it runs between the AC compressor and power steering pump. How do you losen the clamp to get the thing out? I was going to remove the AC compressor and PS pump, but the bottom mounting bolts are behind the AC compressor.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

No this is the inline 4. Sorry I forgot to mention that.
