I would suspect that you pulled a wire off when you were installing the water pump. Check to see if you have spark

Allow some warm water mixed with dish soap to penetrate around the edges of the old ornament. Gently slide a pry tool into the top or bottom center. The hold downs (plastic clips that SHOULD pop) are going to be on the left/right middle. While continuing to pour some warm water and dish soap around the pry point, work the pry tool around the circle. If you don't have a pry tool, use a non-ridged butterknife wrapped in electrical tape. It will take some force to remove, but it will come out.
Please note, you CANNOT re-use the clips. Your new hood ornament should have some with it.
Remove ALL old adhesive from the paint surface so that the new ornament will go on smoothly. Best of luck!
