    According to Millers oil, it has the A9A or A9B Duratec engine.

    The pump has started growling so presumably a shaft bearing has gone dry.

    I've had a look and there seems very little gap between the pulley and the car body.

    Does the engine have to come out to remove the pump?

    No, but the engine mount has to come off - as per a timing belt change. Access is a bit better with the coolant and PAS bottle out of the way, and you can jack the engine up a fair bit.
    Has your pump got 3 ribe bolts and the multivee belt?

    Not sure about the bolts for the pump yet but it runs of a tramline belt.

    The engine has a timing chain.

    Does the engine have to be off the mount to lower it for pump removal clearance?

    Yes, that looks familiar. Engine mount off and slacken the pump pulley bolts with the belt in place, I think.
    This was a 2006 Ka, cabriolet.

    The car's going into a garage cause its a rush job and due to me having an open air garage and currently plagued with the rainy season, I can't get it done.

    A pity actually, I was going to test drive my new Sealey spanners.

    Thanks for posting John!

    No worries fella - loads of bruised knuckles with that one! It wouldn't be the first time I've jacked the engine over with a small scissor jack, either :eek:
