Do water pumps go bad easily in hellcats especially 6 years or older ??Started on this project yesterday evening.
Have all but one bolt removed and transfered to new pump including pulling needing swap.

Last bolt is unable to be removed due to washer not getting past lip of pulley on far right edge of the water pump.

Am thinking the part is the ac compressor and am still researching. I can see two bolts on bottom and left side of it but would rather not mess with it if there is another way to get past and then replace with the new pump.
Do not want to damage either the pulley or the bolt/washer.
For those with experience doing this, what suggestions can you offer?
