Water Pump replacement on 997s


Recommended Posts

Dear contributers and members,

My 997 has been diagnosticated a water pump failure due to

coolant leakage. I have failed to ask the mechanic a question

which may sound stupid after all... :lightbulb:

Does the engine need to be extracted from the body to

replace the water pump?

If this is not the case, is it a complex operation please?

Thank you.

The engine does not need to be removed... but the rear engine mount needs to be removed to get access to the water pump. This requires a hoist and engine support. Also, the cooling system will need to be vacuum filled to prevent air (and not all shops have the vacuum fill tools). Certainly less than 4 hours work with the right tools (IMHO).

Thank you for this precise indication Loren. It is always good to know some of the mechanical

methods applied to get access to the critical parts of the engine.

Thanks again.

:)
