Hello nedy...if you have the V6 engine, it will require the removal of the timing chain cover to access the water pump. The water pump is mounted to the engine block with 4 bolts. It is recommended that the bolts be replaced due to electrolysis (steel bolt in aluminum block) Replace all gaskets and o-ring seals as well.
While you are in there, you can inspect the timing chains, it has 3..and the chain tensioners. A Haynes repair manual would be helpful on this project and will have the correct torque specs.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate mr a fixya.

I have no heat at idle on 2007 grand vitara but good heat when driving.

Sounds like you are getting poor water circulation, have you ever had to change the water pump? I have in rare cases seen the impellers erode away on the pump and it was no longer able to move water around the cooling system correctly.

Replace engine fan pulley bearing

2.0L engine or 2.5L
we dont know which of 3 engines, unless yo say, thus the guessing game. (endless)
sounds like water pump bearings are out. and pulley flopping issues.
way end of life on pump.
the FSM covers this, cover this.

if you post the the engine, i can direct you to real forums for Suz,
that cover this 100 fold times.
use the wiki to find your real engine name (wiki suzuki, grand vitara)
then use google to find the zillion posts on topic
here ill gues at 2.5L like mine. (bty I have the real FSM on this car so not need to guess.)
2.5L V6 is called.
H20 ,25 and 27 are all one family of engine
so ill now google that for your, are you ready ? , its easy

next the online info. ( ,etc)

quote minus photos
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Accessory drive belts
    • Front timing cover
    • Water pump
end quote.

id bet this one photo (google searched) shows what is at hand.
its on the wet side.
