Consult service manual for specific procedures, if necessary; CAUTION: Be sure that fan bolts don't protrude through the hub so far that they hit the water pump housing; NOTE: Removal of backing plate is not recommended, as there are no user serviceable parts in the water pump. If backing plate is removed, use no sealer on O-ring equipped models, and use conventional gasket sealer (not RTV silicone) on gasketed models.
