Extra bolt left over from Water Pump housing. Can anyone help?

Recommended Posts

Can someone please tell me how many bolts secure the water pump, steering pump and belt tensioner housing on a 300 TDI Discovery? I've replaced the "P" Gasket and water pump but I'm left with a 5" bolt and can't see where it's missing from. Just thought I'd ask to save me taking the whole lot apart again. I could've sworn it was from the bottom bracket of the alternator but it won't go through and I've put a smaller bolt through and it seems right.

If not, does anyone know where I'll get a blow up diagram for it?

Many thanks.

Perhaps it's one of the 'spare' ones manufacturers seem to put in things. My camera had dozens of spare screws in it - and I'm sure there are a load more as it rattles when you shake it! :ph34r:

Easy to 'lecture' after the fact I suppose, but it really does pay to make a bolt card. For anyone in the future doing a job like this, it doesn't take long, and saves a ridiculous amount of time when reassembling. More importantly, you know you have all the bolts absolutely correct

See uncle les' pic from removing a timing case...

I did similar out of a piece of 9mm ply for when I do my timing belt changes-being the forgetfull bugger I am it does help me when I need to put it all back together again-especially if the trucks been apart for a few days
