Question about 1985 Honda Civic
You must set the car on TDC and remove the Valve cover, crank pulley and timing covers. Loosen the powersteering, AC and alternator belts and put them aside.Drain the coolant. If you are going to reuse the timing belt, mark the exact tooth with whiteout on the cam gear and timing belt so when you put it back you are not off. Loosen the tensioner with a 14mm and remove the timing blet. Use a 10mm socket t oremove the WP bolts. The water pump is located to the right of the tensioner. replace the WP and timing belt. Use a screw driver to put some tension on the tensioner while you tighten it. To put everything back together it's a reversal of the process.
Good luck and I would recommend you atleast get the maintenace and repair manual. 20 bux at any autoparts store.

the water pump runs off of the timing belt. if you have replace a timing belt before on it you can change the water pump once you get the timing belt off. if you havn't changed a timing belt before better to take to a shop as they will have all the right tools to do the job. hope this helps mike

It's damn near impossible without the right tools. But it should be located on pass side. close to the wheel. You might have to lift engine up or have a really hard time trying to squeeze your hands throught the little opening in between fender & motor.
