Make sure you don't have delco loc 2 or theftloc audio system before disconnecting the battery. You should be able to do this by contacting your local dealer and they run the vin and tell you.
Before you put in the new pump you need to put grease on the splines.
take out the electric fan
take off the serpintine belt
use a large screwdrive or equivlent to hold the pump pulley and loosen all of the bolts holding the pulley on the pump.
After all are loosened then remove from the pulley and remove the pulley.
Take out the four bolts holding the pump to the engine block.
get a wood dowl or equilent and a hammer and give the old pump a few taps to break away the old seal.
Once the seals broke loose take the old pump out.
then clean up the block,
clean everything with brake parts cleaner
put RTV sealant on both sides of the new gasket and put it on the new pump.
try not to let the gasket move around so the bead isnt messed up to bad.
put the pump in and put all four bolts in finger tight
Torque on pump mounting bolts is 18 ft/lbs
Torque on pulley bolts is 18 ft/ lbs
then the rest is just reverse of removal
