you will need some fairly long wrenchs 15mm-16mm to get leverage on the spring loaded serp tesiner put a wrench on the pulley near the belt ? also loosen the 4 fan bolts on the water pump before you remove the belt ? ther are 7 fan shroud bolts you can split the fan shroud ? 2 bolts on the lower right and 2 on the left ? after you do this then you should be down to pulling off the fan and pulley just slides off ? then remove the 4 waterpump mounting boltss, scrape the old gaskets ? when this is done all you have left is to installthe fan studs from the old pump? you do this by screwing down 2 nuts on the stud then with 2 wrenchs lock the nuts together ? then unscrew the bottom nut ? keep doing that till all 4 are replaced? install the gaskets and add some silicone and reverse the process ? hope this helps repost thumbs up !!

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove spark plugs from a hot engine can cause the spark plugs to seize. This can damage the cylinder head threads. Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so can result in engine damage due to dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or in contamination of the cylinder head threads. Contaminated threads may prevent proper seating of the new spark plug. Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
WARNING Do not coat spark plug threads with anti-seize compound. If anti-seize compound is used and spark plugs are over-torqued, damage to the cylinder head threads may result.
