      Red face Tool for Water Pump Pulley; Aveo LT 2011 / Opinion for for timing belt kit brand

      Hello All,

      Where to get the tool required to remove the water pump pulley so I can access and replace the water pump?
      (Kent Moore EN-49201 Water Pump Pulley Remover Installer)
      I have looked on ebay and they are so expensive; I found one cost $45 + $12.67 shipping and that was the cheapest, and then it goes up to $122.99. I saw a video and the guy used it says he bought for like eight bucks!!!

      My water pump is not leaking but I am looking for replacing timing belt so might as well replace the water pump even though it runs separately but I thought it is a good opportunity to get all replaced.

      Also, I am looking for some opinions for the parts, I looked over ebay and GM parts and found the following

      First option is GM parts
      Timing belt part no 24422964 $86.93 (similar to the one installed in my car)
      Belt tensioner part no. 25185910 $82.86
      Belt Idler part no. 24436052 $38.57
      Water pump part no. 25195119 $92.30
      Total =$300.66 + $35 + taxes

      Second option, Autozone kit
      https://www.autozone.com/ignition-tu...13_329038_7453
      $241.99 + taxes
      brand is Dayco

      Third option which is the cheaper off ebay, Gates kit
      https://www.ebay.com/itm/292894202718?ul_noapp=true
      $166.59
      Includes timing belt, water pump, belt tensioner, belt idler.

      Other options on ebay are cheaper but since timing belt is critical component, I would rather buy a reputable timing belt components. I had an incident before that a shop replaced my timing belt in a KIA spectra and after 9k miles, it broke. At the time, I was afraid to tackle the job myself but I am looking for to do it myself this time. It was too bad that I moved after and the car engine was totally ruined.

      Any recommendations will be appreciated.

      Thanks

      Are you sure you need a tool to get behind the pulley? I would imagine you can use an open ended wrench and get in there. No need to yank the pulley off while its on the car. Once it is out, you can put it in a vise to remove the bolts and swap the pulley over to the new pump. I haven't heard of anyone needing a special tool to swap out an Aveo water pump.

      Hello Daox,

      Yes, I think that a small Torx 45T tool needed to remove the pulley over the water pump.

      Please see the picture below, the red marks are pointing toward the pulley.

      Also here is the link for the video, the gentleman talks about the pulley removal starting at 3:26

      Some of the bolts to remove the water pump are blocked by the pulley; you have to remember that the OPís car is a 2011; which means he has the LXV engine (such a special snowflake of an engine) the EN-49201 was much cheaper when I bought mine on eBay when I did my water pump.
