Question about 1994 Volvo 850
It's a fairly invlved process and you usually do the serpentine belt and timing belt along with it. It's about 2 hours worth of work all together. Here's a good tutorial on it: http://volvospeed.com/Repair/timingbelt.php

You have to remove the serpentine belt then the timing belt cover. then take off the pulley on the crank for the serpentine belt but leave the one for the timing belt on. line up the marks on the crank pulley to the mark on the block and the cam pulleys to the marks on the plastic cover. thats is how you time the engine so you can remove the timing belt. once you remove the timing belt there is 6 or 7 bolts holding in the water pump. make sure you replace the gasket as well. and when re assembling make sure all of the timing marks line up or you will be buying a new head or motor

I did not have any problem installing the water pump. It took about 2 hrs.
Just pay attention to how the old one is designed and comes off the block.
Tap out the tube from the water pump to the heater core and replace the gasket in place with a small amount of gasket sealer to hold it in place.
use a lever to raise the water pump to squeeze the larger O ring into place so you can start the first bolt and you'll be on your way to the finish line in no time.
This is not a job for your average home owner do it your selfer. a little more than basic machanics is sugested to do this one.

When you open the hood, look directly behind the headlight. all the way in the corner and a little way down should be a hook. I usually use a screwdriver and pull directly outward and then a little to the right or left. Then bring the hook back and the corner light should be disconnected. Then you can pull it out and do what you need to do. When you put it back, its a pain because you have to get the hook into a plastic groove. Make sure that you know where the plastic piece is before you start, just get a flashlight and find it. Then use your screwdriver the pull the hook up and get it into the groove. Presto!

It's the solinoid. It's placed alongside the distributor. A coil about 1" around, and 2" long loosen, disconect the cable and lead coming out of it, repalce, and it will run fine then.
