This was of a great help! thank you!I am replacing my 2nd water pump (New AC Delco component $112 indigenous GM dealer) (Originally replaced by my mechanic with an aftermarket part) and also saved a couple of $$$. I carry out realize currently that my water pump failure is due to my pan clutch / blades. Native the an initial replacement, the fan blades were damaged (dug into the shroud) making the fan oscillating (Not caught by mine mechanic). Because of this damaging the water pump bearings. For $200 I obtained a used fan clutch with fan and shroud. Not mounted yet.
Just make certain your fan clutch is the redesigned 2005+ version, or you"ll be cursing her bargain as soon as you need to swap that again.

Clutch fanI did every the steps to remove the clutch fan and housing as though ns were instead of the water pump, yet I was just replacing the clutch fan. This is what ns found. A frayed wire. Currently I dont recognize if I actually did the fraying if trying to gain the wires complimentary of the wire bracket or if the wire was currently frayed. However there was electrical tape wrapped roughly this ar of frayed wire. Nonetheless since I did all this work I determined to download the 05 envoy clutch pan on to mine 03 envoy simply to make sure it works. We"ll see. I"m in the center of it and taking a break.
