Ok, now I know for sure what the problem is, the water pump pulley is pressed on, u will need to disconnect the top side engine mount and raise the engine up about a foot with a floor jack, make sure u put the jack saddle somewhere where u won't damage the oil pan, if u must lift it by the pan use a flat peice of wood to spread the load, once it is up the pump will slide out, then u must have the old pulley removed and the new one pressed on,I think a power steering pulley remover tool is what u need, Kragen and Autozone will loan these to u free of charge if u want to try and press the pulley off and on yourself.

You can remove that center bolt easily with an impact gun. It has normal threads on it. An impact gun will prove to be an affordable tool that you will use again. You can get an electric one from Harbor Freight. They make the job of removing tough bolts much easier. If the engine is in the car, you might not have enough room. You can use a ratchet and if the engine is turning, you can hold the pulley with another tool sold at Harbor Freight called a rubber strap wrench.
