Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
1. messed up timing need help to get it back to normal 2. and new water pump was installed but it still spills out alot of water help and tips on reinstalling water pump would highly be appreciated
You should did your home work before removed old water pump most vw engines water pump is part of the timing belt assembly so when time to replace around 80k miles you should order complete timing belt kit which includes water pump with it.
so after you finish up if you didnt try to hard to run engine you may or may not damage any piece from your valve train!!even with all proper parts you have on your hand you still need high cost speciality tools to complete timing belt replacement on that engine recommendetion is tow your vehicle to mechanic shop and let them do it for you it will save you time and money!

Use a screwdriver to unscrew the clamp that connects the negative battery cable to the battery post. Remove the cable. Jack up the car using an automotive jack.
Set a large container underneath the radiator at the drain hole to catch the discharged coolant. Open the cap on top of the radiator and unplug the drain plug underneath the radiator.
Remove the components that lead to the water pump using an adjustable wrench. In order, these include the upper and lower engine covers, the accessory drive belt and its tensioner and the upper and center timing belt covers.
Free up the timing belt by turning the engine so that the number one cylinder is at the TDC mark. Loosen the timing belt tensioner enough to ease the belt from the sprocket. Remove the timing belt mounting bolts.
Unbolt the water pump retaining bolts and then the water pump. Remove the o-ring and discard it. Clean the mounting surface.
