Question about Cars & Trucks
Don't want to mess with timing belt....is it hard to line up belt if it has to come off...???
It is necessary to remove the timing belt to change the pump. Take the opportunity to put on a new belt while you're at it. Cam alignment is fairly easy. Look at

go to public library and look at Haynes or Chilton auto repair manuals.
Not easy if you aren't mechanically savvy and have a good set of tools.

If it is your first time having the timing belt changed, chances are the water pump is still in good enough shape to hold out until you are due for your next belt change. No sense throwing away money prematurely...
