In this video, we're going to show you have to replace the front washer pump on this 2002 Chevy Suburban. It's the same part and similar process on these Suburbans from 2000 to 2004.

Start off by removing this 10mm bolt, then loosen this 10mm bolt right here. Then just move this brace out of the way. Now, using your 8mm wrench, you just want to loosen up both of these connections. You start with the negative, loosen it, and then pull that off and then remove the positive cable. Now, you want to remove this 13mm bolt and pull this battery hold down up and out. We'll just fast forward as Don removes that bolt. The hold down will just pull right up and out. Now, lift your battery out. Now, remove these seven 10mm bolts in the battery tray. We'll fast forward as Don does this. Now, lift the battery tray up and out.

Next, remove these four clips from inside your inner fender. For the smaller clips, you want to just pry out the center and the bottom will pull out. You can either use a flat blade screwdriver to pry out the center and then use pliers to pull it out the rest of the way, or you can use wire cutters and just feed them underneath it and just pull them out with those just make sure not to cut the clips. For the larger ones, you just pry them out. We'll just fast forward as Don removes those other three clips. Now, lift up on this tab and pull the inner fender free. Then just tuck the inner fender back behind the wheel.

Pull the hoses free from the side of the washer bottle, and then just remove this 10mm bolt. We'll fast forward as Don does that. Remove this 10mm bolt down behind the inner fender. Now, if there's washer fluid inside your washer bottle, you want to just make sure you have a drip pan underneath it. Then pull the washer pumps up and out. Disconnect your washer level sensor, and to do this you just pull up on the tab and disconnect the harness. Then push your washer bottle down and out. The rear washer pump is the one with the black harness, just lift up and disconnect the harness, and then just pry the hose free.

Take your new washer pump and reconnect the harness, and then reconnect the hose. Feed your new washer bottle back up into place. Then take your washer pumps and push them straight back down into the washer bottle, and then back until they snap in. Now, reconnect your level sensor harness. Pull the washer bottle up into place and re-clip the hoses on the side. Then replace that 10mm bolt just tighten it up. Then replace and tighten up this lower 10mm bolt.
