Removing the Pump Housing
Disconnect or turn OFF the electrical power source to the pump
before proceeding with this step. Using a socket wrench, remove
the nuts and bolts that hold the hosing to the seal plate. There
are six bolts holding the pump housing and seal plate together as
shown on the picture below with red arrows (two not visible are
on the opther side).
Keep the nuts and bolts in safe place and mark them so to identify
which bolts go where. Once you remove the six bolts, separate the
housing from the seal plate by pulling them apart. You may see some
water pouring out of the pump housing chamber so have some dry cloth
to clean your work area. Carefully set aside the pump housing you'll
not need to do anything to it except put it back together at the
end. Proceed to remove the pump diffuser.
