My condolences. It's located on the passenger end of the engine, under the timing covers. You have to remove the timing belt to replace it. It's a knuckle-busting job; no room to work in there, and you've got to remove a LOT of parts just to get to it. My '96 also had a corroded feed tube, so I ended up having to take apart just about the entire other end of the engine as well! If you can afford it, it's well worth leaving that job to a professional, especially if you haven't done a timing belt before.
BTW, if you do go ahead with it, here's a hint that I found the hard way. Take off the intake manifold first - it'll save you hours of trying to remove the power steering bracket bolts! (That's not as frivolous as it might sound - you have to remove the manifold just to change the spark plugs on that car!)

First, I'd recommend you buy a manual, because the water pump is internally mounted, driven by the timing belt. You will also need a puller to remove the crankshaft pulley. You can usually rent/borrow this from the same place you bought the manual. The manual will also show you how to properly install the timing belt and compress the tensioner.
You will need to drain the cooling system, raise the car (safely), remove the right tire, right inner fender, right engine mount (aka front mount), accessory drive belts, timing belt cover, timing belt and tensioner (which needs to be recompressed correctly), and now you are at the water pump. Since the timing belt has to be removed, you should also replace it.

Jack and stand your car on side to replace the arm, remove wheel,it might be easier to remove the brake rotor and caliper out of the way, now there is a shock tower that the axle goes through, remove the lower bolt, next remove the ball jiont nut and cutter pin, hit the spindle area of ball jiont, carefull to not hit the threads, remove the nut that holds the sway bar link to arm, this one can be very stuburn, remove the bolt that holds the arm to kframe, and pry the arm out, reverse the procedure.highly recommend penatrating fluid to all nuts and bolts days prior to teardown to sink in the areas. GOD LUCK, RDJRP

jack up the car take the wheels off the caliper which holds the pads need to come off usally 2 bolts if you are replacing the rotors you may have to hit them with a hammer to break the free if they have little clips on the rotors you can grabb the clips with pliers and take them off you do not need to replace them make sure you push the pistons on the calipers back in clean and lube the pins and the any where the rest on the knuckle do get lube on the rotors put it all back together do the same on the otherside before you start the car pump the brakes until a good pedal then you are good to go i hope this helps you
