Dis-connect battery, drain coolant, remove fan & radiator cowling ( fan coupling has a left hand thread ) undo 4 x retaining bolts in water pump housing. To get the pump out, you may have to tap it slightly & lever it about as the body fits inside an alloy casting. Before you refit, make sure the housing the pump fit into it clean & free from corrosion or pitting by cleaning with some medium to fine abrasive paper. Put some grease ( not sealer ) around the new pump seal & refit everything else. Remember to bleed the air out of the cooling system before driving. Hope this helps & good luck !

Siezed pumps are a nightmare.
Spray with penetrating fluid, let that soak for 5 minutes then use a length of 3x3 wooden post and hit hard with a lump hammer. It will eventually break out.
The pump is alloy the block is cast so you'll be fine.
