Now the serp belt is off so remove the water pump bolts and pull the pulley off. I can't remember but had to use the floor jack under the oil pan to raise or lower the engine to get it out. You'll see.

Now the next timing belt cover. Remove the serp belt idler pulley with your 13mm wrench. I raised the engine up for this. I needed to have the bolt, which is long, clear the wheel well. There's 4 more bolts, three 13mm and the T-50 torx socket. I put all this hardware and the water pump bolts in one bag put off to the side.
