VERY EASY TAKE OUT THE BELTS DISCONNET HOSES WITH A LONG WRENCH TAKE BOLTS OUT, CLEAN THE AREA OF THE WATER PUMP HOUSING ( OLD GASKET RESIDUALS) , DRY EVERYTHING VERY NICE , GLUE AND INSTALL THE NEW GASKET IN THE WATER PUMP , AND RE INSTALLS, IN THE SAME POSITION YOU TOOK THE OLDER ONE OUT, DONT MOVE ANYTHING, REPALCE BELTS ... AND ROLL.
It is suggested by any mechcanic to perform this maintenace every 80,000 miles if you properbly maintain your vehicle. That mean going by the owners manual suggestions. Also I would highly recomend changing the water pum as well for it runs off this belt and water pumps only last as long as the belt will also. If a new belt is installed without a new water pump it may fail in no time. I seen it happen more than a dozen times in the past ten years
the hardest part of this job is removing your fan clutch. you removed your top fan shroud, then your fan clutch, its reverse thread. take off your belt, upper radiator hose and 6 10mm bolts hold it in. clean water pump housing and put all back together. aftermarket water pumps do not come with theermostat, dealer pumps do. remove your belt tensioner from old water pump 3- 15mm bolt, two different sizes and install on your new pump. you need, 10mm socket, 15mm socket, flat head screw driver, pliers to removed hose,fan clutch tool(rent at autoparts store)
