1. Drain coolant from engine.
2. Remove water pump drain plug. It is located on the front of the block just above the A/C compressor and about 2 o'clock of the crankshaft pulley.
3. Place a floor jack under engine (be sure to use a piece of wood in between jack and oil pan). Remove the right side engine mounting, mounting bracket and nuts.
4. Remove the drive belts and idler pulley bracket.
5. Remove the two black covers on the front of the engine. The one towards the radiator will have the water pump behind it and the one towards the thermo barrier will have the timing chain tenioner behind it.
6. Push in the tensioner sleeve, apply a stopper pin so it does not return ( a paper clip will work ).
7. Remove the tensioner (2 - 10mm bolts )
8. Remove the 3 water pump bolts.
9. Turn the crankshaft pulley approximately 20 degrees backwards to put slack in the chain to give clearance for the water pump.
10. Install the two M8 bolts into the threaded holes in the water pump (the upper hole and the lower hole)
11. Tighten the M8 bolts by turning half turn alternately until the water pump becomes loose. Lift up water pump and remove it. Make sure you move the timing chain away from the pump to remove it. Do not worry about engine timing. It will not effect it at all. The water pump is not part of timing the engine, nor will the chain losse contact with the crankshaft gear.
12. Make sure to use two new "O" rings on the water pump.
13. Install water pump and tighten bolts (63.4 - 85.1 inch pounds)
14. Return the crankshaft pulley to its original position by turning it 20 degrees forward.
15. Install timing chain tensioner, then remove the stopper pin ( paper clip)
16. Place sealer on the black covers and reinstall.
17. Reinstall engine mounting.
18. Reinstall drive belts.
19. Fill with new coolant.
20. Start engine and check for leaks. (Engine will be noise at first until the tensioner fills with engine oil. This is normal.)
