Question about 1990 Volvo 240
There is a block Drain, a brass colored nozzle, near the rear of the engine block under the exhaust. After draining that, the coolant level will be low enough to do the pump. Also, there are 3 - 4 bolts holding the pump, with two studs and nuts as well.
Since you've never done one of these pumps before, i'll also tell you, that the top seal on the water pump is sealed by prying the pump up tight to the head, and then tightening th two nuts down. It is a strange design, but it works.

You have to pull off the fan,then remove the water pump belt,some people remove the radiator,then is an drain under the radiator,just as easy to remove bottom hose.The water pump bolts are infront,you can see them now,with fan remove.Theirs an coolant tube that go,s in the back of the water pump,make sure you have that little o ring,also you don't put RTV on the back of the new pump,just the gasket .,sometimes there leak here because of bad gaskets.

There may not be drains anymore, since they cut costs so much these days.
Pull a lower hose instead.
But you need a manual probably.
If it is front wheel drive, you probably have to remove and replace the cam timing belt.
Since there has to be a drive pully, at least it is easy to find the pump.
