you can not replace just the waterpump bearing, not that you would want to. you would need to own a press with adapters, seal pullers, possibly race puller, and like YJWES said they are only about 30.00

change the water pump asap--- i did mine a few months ago, you should be able to see if its leaking from water pump... not really a tough job just make sure you have all the tools.etc- follow the book-- i got mine for 65 bucks i think

Got a jeep from a guy at work a few months ago. He finally said enough when the waterpump went. Got a good deal on it. Paid 25 for the pump and the sealer was a few $'s more. Did it by myself in an (6hrs.)afternoon. Make sure you have the BOOK w/ you.

I had a problem getting the new belt on so I just re-used the old one. Should have replaced it, but was just wanting to get it on the road. Any tips out there???? How tight should the belt be?

The belt should be tight enough to a point where you can apply some pressure on it and it should have a slight hump only when you put pressure , it can be adjusted from the powersteering bracket.

Can be done if you are experienced with soldering. a pencil solder pen from radio shack wont work. you will need a heavy duty iron or a very controlled torch. radiator shops can probably repair for less than the price of a heavy duty iron, just remove rad yourself and take it to them.

really, its just nuts and bolts. have a digital camera? take before pics and when done should look like before. if you need actual step by step you might be better off paying someone to do it for you.

if i was going to go through the trouble to pull my radiator out I would just put a new one in. Last year I dropped one in for under $100...
steve....it's hard to screw up. repair manuals are helpful.

Guys, quick question... I haven't crawled under my 4.0L YJ yet, but it's dumping anti-freeze pretty good. By the looks of the location, looks to me the pump. I don't have a manual yet, but my closest grease-monkey garage is telling me that the cost will be $250 if it's a hose ~ $350 if its the pump. He claims that the pump has to come off to replace the hose, this true? Sounds like snake oil to me.
