[xj] Water Pump Remove

Hi Jag Lovers, I need to put a new H2O pump on my 86 SIII, looks straight
forward enough except for the fan shroud. Iv’e seen other posting talk about
removing the “top section” of the shroud to remove fan and pump etc. My shroud
appears to be in one piece ie. a full circle around fan with four flap covered
vents either side.
Do I need to take the rad and shroud off together to get to everything?
TIA Dick Griffiths

Radiator shroud is one piece. It is held on by two bolts topside and two
below. You don’t need to remove radiator but removal makes refitting
things a lot easier easier. I of course realized this when I later
removed the radiator for rodding. My recommendation is to remove
everything and get that radiator rodded out. If you leave the radiator
in while removing fan, pump, etc., tape a thin piece of cardboard on the
radiator in front of the fan. This will save the radiator fins during
fan, etc. removal and refitting…=========================================================================

I think there is more than that, certainly three at the top, and I think
three at the bottom too. But they’re pretty obvious - just undo them,
and off she comes.

It’s the Series IIs that have a top section that can be removed. My shroud
top section just has two bolts holding it on, and once they’re out,
everything is easily accessible.

When I replaced my water pump in my 86 S3, I found there was easily enough
room to work without removing the rad. The shroud, however, really has to
be removed to get the pump in and out and remove the air pump, ps, etc.,
belts. This is a great opportunity to replace all your belts, including the
AC compressor strap. Consider, also, replacing your rad fan while things
are all apart.
Someone on this list suggests removing the bonnet from the car to allow
more room. This would indeed help save your back while removing the pump,
and make things a lot less awkward. I chose not to do this, however, as I
think two people are needed to remove the bonnet.

Take note of what bolts go where in removing the wp. Some of the bolts,
which otherwise look the same size, diameter, etc., are a bit longer.
Depending upon where you got your wp, you may need to transfer one or more
of the fittings on your old pump to the new one. One of the fittings on my
old pump was frozen; it was a real grunt job removing it.

Best,

You are correct Graeme, and the early S3 cars, the ones with the metal fan,
have this arrangement also. The plastic-fanned S3 has a one piece cowl.
