Got it! The plunger had to removed from the inside first, duh! However, I discovered that the rubber stopper on the plunger thingy is missing--is that a problem? It's the one that keeps it from...

Thanks!

The site is very helpful indeed! I figured out how to take apart the pump, but it proved anti-climactic. I found nothing. Now I'm going to check the self-cleaning body, and the self-cleaning filter...

I'll do as you suggest. What else would do that besides the e-brake? I've made sure several times that I'd disengaged it. Could it still be stuck even though I disengaged it and the light on the...

It's not a serpentine belt, and I am going to retighten. Nevertheless, why would the previous one (alternator) sieze up like that? Also, should I rule out the battery?
