Oil pump...still ;(

Has anybody removed an oil pump while the motor is still in the car?

Cam belt etc. all removed then it can be approached from that side. Best thing is for you to look up the manuals that Totally Alfa has kindly put on that site. You will find the procedure in a couple of places, the engine overhaul manual would be easier but it is also shown in operations possible with engine in the car. There are a lot to trawl through but it's all there.

Thanks for the links. I was wondering how physically difficult it is once the belts are off.
How long did it take?

If you have the sump off that's probably the most difficult part as there are those restricted access Ribe bolts. As for cam belts trickiest bit is making sure you have a method of recording where each cover bolt goes, I have corriflute cards in the shape of the covers with holes punched through for the bolts. Then there is the crankshaft pulley to deal with, note it is left-hand thread and tight, then it really isn't that difficult. Can't remember removing engine mount but it may be necessary, obviously the engine will need supporting if it is. Taking your time, checking everything, having a break now and then you can do the whole thing in a day for everything; you're part way through already.
