The way this car was made is for this problem to ONLY be fixed by the dealer! No other repair shop just cost me $700+ dollars. There are no other solutions. Sorry.The dealer will say it's a cluster.It's because of the built in security system, and no it can be removed.

I'd expect to pay anywhere from 8-12 hours of labor. A head gasket is a tremendously time-consuming job and takes a lot of work. You'll also be paying for other parts (intake and exhaust manifold gaskets have to be replaced, new coolant, new oil since both are drained before the job starts), and if you're doing a water pump, bite the bullet and do the timing belt, timing belt tensioner, accessory belt(s), and thermostat as well - those are normally done with the water pump and there's no sense in paying the labor twice.

SOURCE: where is the water pump
Pump is driven by the timing chain,under the front cover,not an easy one.
Some engines the pump is a splined shaft that slides into a gear,that one is pretty easy,3 bolts from the back side. Others have the gear built on to the pump,for those the cover has to come off,timing chain has to come off.No fun.
Would suggest looking at the new pump for your manufacture date and see if it has a gear or a splined shaft.
