Loosen the bolts on the water pump flywheel then remove the belt.
Take a oil-pan length 2x4 and use it in betwen jack and oil pan and jack up engine almost so that steering pump fluid cover on top side almost hits cross bar.
Remove the center bolt of the motor mount holding the two halves of the mount together.
Remove two bolts and one nut on the engine side mount. Remove 4 bolts (2 on top and two hidden on side) of the bolts holding the mount to the frame.
Now take a big 2x4 and wedge it so as to move the engine to the driver side of the compartment. At the same time rotate and move the mount piece on the engine side rotating about the stud [that the nut came off of]so as to paritally split apart the two mount halves. You'll see that you can now get at the two hidden bolts.
Remove the water pump pulley wheel. There are a bunch of small and little bolts in the water pump...some on bottom side.

Hope the following will help. 1) Drain the radiator. 2) Loosen the 4 bolts on the water pump pulley. You will remove the pulley and install it on the new pump. Just loosen the bolts 1/4" turn with the belt still on, this will prevent the pulley from turning. 3) Remove serpentine belt. 4) Remove 4 bolts and the pulley and set aside. 5) Remove two power steering pump bolts (15mm). You must do this because one of the bolts for the water pump is behind the PS pulley, and you can�t remove it without moving the PS pump out of the way. The bolts on the PS pump are in the 12 o�clock and 6 o�clock position. There is a large access hole in the PS pump pulley. Just line it up, slip in a long socket and remove them. Let the PS pump rest on the oil filter housing. 6) Remove water pump. There are 4 large bolts (15mm) and 4 small bolts (3/8") on the water pump. After the bolts are all out, I placed a length of pipe on the water pump and gave it a couple taps with a hammer and it popped right off. 7) Remove old gasket. The tool of choice IMO is a razor blade like you�d use to remove a winshield inspection sticker. Be careful not to score the mating surface. Remove old gasket and dry off surface. 8) Seat the new gasket and water pump in place, install all the bolts. 9) Reinstall the PS pump and torque bolts. 10) Install pulley on water pump and torque. 11) Install serpentine belt. 12) Re-torque bolts on water pump pulley if needed.
Hi once you have all the bolts off for the mount raise the front of the motor up till you can remove the center part of the mount
I use a floor jack and a 2x4 across the oil pan then remove the studs for the motor mount bracket now remove the bracket and now you can get the water pump out
hope this helps
First you must drain the coolant. Remove powersteering pump[keep hoses connected)this is just to make room for water pump removal so just sit it off to he side.Loosen the the water pump pulley mounting bolts, remove the drivebelt,remove the pump pulley. Remove the pump mounting bolts and pul the pump from engine.Install every thing in reverse ,but be sure to clean the mating surface of old sealer and gasket first, also be sure to use RTV gasket sealer on engine side of the new gasket.Be sure not to over/under tighten the bolts the torque specs. are 22 to 29 for the long bolts and 96 to132 for short bolts and 108 to 132 ft lb for the pulley bolts.
