Default Changing water pump on my Yukon

Looks pretty simple, however you know how that goes sometimes, Four bolts and its off? Or is there something I'm missing. Seems like most of my time will be spent getting to the darn thing!

Easy, as long as its the 5.7 and not the 5.3 its like all the old ones. Shouldn't take but a few minutes. Let me guess, leaking at the weep hole.

its an easy install.....just did mine for peace of mind at 103K miles...
loosen the waterpump pulley bolts with the belt tention still on to make thing easier...and remove the top half of the fan shroud.....rest is a breeze
