You can get the tensioner shock out without taking out the water pump. The bottom bolt is in the dark depths of the 103 engine bay. Unless you have really small hands, you would probably have to remove the radiator to get your hand and a 1/4" drive ratchet and 10 or 11mm deep socket. You can't see the bolt with the radiator in the car. The top bushing on the shock has gotten brittle and was hammered to death. For a temporary fix you can take the top bolt out and see what you can do the jury rig it. Possibly some rubber tape or silicone sealant.
