There were three different sizes of engines used for the 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier. The 2.2Liter VIN 4, the 2.2L VIN F, and the 2.4L.

A.
2.2L VIN 4: Hood open, looking at the front of the car towards the windshield. The water pump is located on the middle right. It's above and to the right of the bottom pulley. (Harmonic balancer) The pulley that connects to it has three bolts in a triangle shape. They come in from the front. Behind the pulley is a square shape with four bolts. One in each corner. They come in from the front. These four bolts hold the water pump on.

B.
2.2L VIN F: Hood open, facing the front of the car. The water pump is on the middle left. It is above, and to the left of the bottom pulley.

To access this one is No Fun at all! You have to not only drain the cooling system, but you have to also remove the right front tire, and the right front inner fender well!
Then you remove a round access plate. Uses Torx or Allen Head bolts. After removing the access cover, you use these same bolts, and install a water pump holding tool. (J 43651)

Then you remove the bolts that secure the sprocket, to the water pump.
Remove the bolt attaching the water pump to the engine block.
Remove the bolt attaching the engine front cover to the water pump.
Remove the feed pipe, that joins the thermostat housing to the water pump.
Remove two bolts that secure the water pump to the engine block.
Then remove the water pump.

C.
2.4L If my information is correct, the water pump is in the same place as the 2.2L VIN F,

SOURCE: How do you change the headlight for a 2001 chevy cavalier

i actually just did this a couple days ago, this takes about 20 minutes and a little bit of patience. When you pop your hood you will see a protective piece of plastic over the headlights/radiator, you firstly have to remove the plastic clips holding that piece then pull that piece of plastic off, once done u will see 2 bolts holding each headlight in place, i believe it is a 9/16 socket but if not just find the one that fits, remove the 4 bolts (2 for each headlight) and pull the headlight in an up and outwards manor. if you feel any resistance do not yank look at why it is catching and clear it, then it should just pop out (the headlight and the corner piece and clipped together so dont pull it too far out) then when the bulb is accessible pull the old bulb, put the new bulb in and voila place the headlight back into position, redo the 4 bolts holding the headlights and re-attach the plastic headlight/radiator cover. Enjoy the new lights

SOURCE: how to replace water pump on 2.4 chevy cavalier

This is a job for the dealer or cerified mechanic. The front cover and timing chain needs to be remove to access the water pump mounted behind the engine. The pump is driven by the timing chain and timing will need to be reset using special tools.

whichever side of the motor you see the drive belts on.

Ford puts theirs on the passenger side but I see gm stuff on the drivers side too.

pop the hood and look for the drive belts. It is either drivin by one of these belts OR off the timing belt under the timing belt cover.
