This is not something you would typically see. Are you purchasing a rebuilt or new pump? Buying from dealer or after market parts store?
Most major chain parts stores (Pep Boys, Auto Zone, Advance, O'Reilly's, etc. offer a 1 year warranty on they lowest cost pump, and typically a limited lifetime warranty on the higher priced units. If you only got a 90 day warranty, you might want to explore something like I've described above.

First you need to take off all the belts, then remove the a/c line to axcess to the 8 mms bolts holding
the upper and lower timing belt covers. To facilitate the job you will need to remove lower crankshaft pulley.

I just went thru this on mine... it is easiest to get to from the bottom right corner... remove the shields and it's right there... take the lower adjustment bolt out , the upper rear bolt and the upper outer bolt out , drop it down and swap wires and replace . Tip; a shorty phillips screw driver works well to allign the holes on the upper rear bolt. DO NOT tighten any of the bolts untill they are all in.
