Thoroughly clean and dry the mounting surfaces, bolts and bolt holes. Place a 1/8 inch (3mm) bead of RTV sealant on the pump's sealing surface.

Install the pump to the engine, coating the bolt threads with sealant as they are installed. Tighten the bolts to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).

If removed, install the alternator and/or air conditioning compressor.
