Its a major job to change them on these cars. lol Been there done that. The easiest way to tell you on here is for you to go to the parts store and buy a Haynes or Mitchel book which will cost you around $20 and make sure you get the book for your car. Its quite the process to change these. I don't mean to give you bad news but I have done several and it ain't fun.

How do you change a water pump on a 2000 Cadillac Eldorado

if you have the north star motor it on drivers side tward front grill, you will find a belt cover you need to remove an you'll need a special tool most auto parts stores will rent it to you for a small fee ,it likes a large socket ,if you have the new one you'll see how it fits in socket, using a rachet with socket place over water pump and turn a 1/2 turn to left and it's out ,replace in reverse ,take care not to disturb new o ring seal ,and don't use silicone to seal it , BUT general motors strongly suggest you do use some type of motor sealant , now for the bad news =these motors are very bad with over heating issues that have plaged the north star for years , if you drain antifreeze make sure you use air purge valves to remove any air from motor (purge valve looks like a brake bleeder screw ) or it will continue to over heat, im guessing that's why your doing this , if over heating is a problem take the time to go over all aspects of the cooling system =belts, flushing motor, cooling fans working correctly ,coolant filled, well I REALLhope this helps you ,good luck with it .

Do you have to change the water pump when changing the timing belt/timing?

You don't have too, but not bad idea, the timing belt drives the water pump, if you just replace timing belt, and not water pump, water pump could go out and mess up the timing belt, now it has to be done all over again, timing belt, water pump and labor.

What are the steps to replace the water pump on 1996 lexus es300

Hi, you will need some special tool like : External torx (star)socket, pully and regular tool (# 10,12,14 etc..metric) to change the water pump. First, you need to clear the room for the job because such as Two belts -(alternator,air cond., pump ect and pully) need to disconnected and take out the plastic cover, tire e.t.c. There are about ten bolts. The water pump is inside the plastic cover which turns by the timing belt. I strongly recomment to change the timing belt at the same time ($30.00-timing belt- It last about 80000-90,000 miles). Remember to mark the timing gear carefully when you take the timing belt out. This will help you put the timing belt back in the right degree for the engine perform. Water pump can only replace after the timing belt is disconnected.
Take care
