First go buy a Robert Bentley manual. This is the VW shop manual and it explains everything.

http://www.bentleypublishers.com/volkswagen#sub96

The water pump on that car can be tricky,especially if everything is rusty and you don't have air tools.
First, remove all the V-belts
Seconds remove the alternator, AC compressor and power steering pump. The bracket that holds the AC and alternator goes over the water pump. After that it is rather easy. Careful not to mess up the pulley or allen bolts when you remove the water pump pulley.

To get the viscous clutch of the water pump you first need to remove the belt pulley and remove the water pump. Then put the impeller of the water pump in a vice and using a 32 spanner screw the viscous clutch off. Note that the bolt on the viscous clutch is of left hand thread so you have to unscrew the opposite way to a normal bolt.

Unfortunately, u must remove the timing belt. This is why it is recommended to change the water pump when the timing belt is changed.
Here's the procedure : Disconnect neg. battery cable, remove splash shield at wheel well, (after removing wheel to help gain access, turn the engine to align timing marks and set #1 cylinder at top dead center on the COMPRESSION stroke. Once this is done, u can NOT disturb engine or u will have a fun time trying to figure out how the heck to set the timing. Drain anitfreeze, remove timing belt, remove water pump bolts (be aware that bolts may be different lengths, don't mix them up, remove water pump and O ring.
Put it back together: install new O ring and water pump, be careful Oring doesn't slip or move out of position, tighten to 9 ft lbs, install timing belt, refill antifreeze, reconnect battery cable, start car, check for leaks, bleed cooling system, replace splash shield.
