Hi,
You need to remove the bellhousing cover plate and put a screw driver into the flywheel ring gear to lock it from turning.

If you can get a friend to help you do it because the bolt holding the pulley on is very tight.

Hope this helps

Thanks
Jason

You'll either need an impact gun, or a chain strap wrench to hold the pulley while loosening the bolt. That bolt is usually torqued to almost 200 foot pounds.

Yes,there is a special wrench that fits the water pump. You have to loosen bolts on pump and put wrench on pump and turn pump to get belt on. Then tighten pump till marks line up on tensioner,then tighten the pump back down. Be sure to roll the engine around twice and recheck timing marks on crank and cams.

These engines are identified as an interference engine and on no account must the crank shaft and cam shaft be moved with the timing belt removed. You no not need to remove the water pump. You need to remove the water pump pulley only (not the water pump). I trust this helps.

use a impact gun with a few extensions is the easiest solution. I can assure you that trying to loosen it by hand will not work. Be careful, sometimes that bolt on various vehicles has reverse threads.
