The water pump is located at the firewall end of the engine. If your car has A/C. it makes it a little more difficult, as you'll find the compressor is in the way and difficult to work around. ONLY if your A/C system is empty, could you disconnect the hose to the A/C compressor. Otherwise you might consider disconnecting the entire compressor from the engine (but not opening theA/C sytem so you don;t loose the gas) and moving it out of the way if you can't work around it.

There are four bolts holding the pulley to the case; loosen these then remove the drive belt(s). The belts hold the pulley steady while you loosen the bolts.

Remove the pulley completely.

Then remove the bolts holding the pump to the case; NOTE the position of the longer bolts - you'll need to reinstall these in the same locations!

Install the new pump in reverse order; make sure you use new gaskets.

Penetrating oil liberally sprayed on all bolts before removal eases the work.

Good luck!
