You need to pull the tensioner in the opposite direction of the belt side to loosen the belt enough to remove.You should diagram out the way the belt is routed first also.The tensioner is the part that looks like it isn't really attached to anything purposeful and is spring-loaded.It may be a little difficult to move,but you should be able to move it enough to get the belt started off.Good luck!

SOURCE: 2001 chevy impala Trying to change water pump.

I replaced Intake Manifold Gaskets this weekend, which is a pain, however the water pump shouldn't be too difficult. Once the serpentine belts is removed, the water pump pulley is just attached with 4 bolts, I think they are either 10mm or 13mm if I remember correctly? They ARE a pain, because the pulley wants to turn, but it's do-able. After that is off, the water pump is pretty easy, roughly 6 or 8 bolts around the perimeter, just make sure the new one goes on the correct orientation, not turned clockwise/counter clockwise. There isn't a BIG difference in the bolt pattern, but it's enough to MAKE a big difference. Get each bolt threaded by hand before cranking them tight.

HOW TO REPLACE WATER PUMP ON MY 1995 CADALLIC EL DORADO


Instructions
    • Place a ratchet driver into the drain plug on the Cadillac's radiator and drain the coolant into a drain pan. Close the drain plug after you drain the coolant.
    • 2Remove the radiator hose from the water pump. The hose has a compression clamp on it. Squeeze the clamp together with pliers and then slide the hose off the pump.

    • 3Locate the tensioner pulley for the water pump. It situates on the engine between the water pump and the crankshaft. Place a ratchet driver into the square-receiving hole on the pulley and rate the pulley to loosen tension on the drive belt. Pull the drive belt off the water pump pulley.
    • 4Remove the four bolts that hold the pump onto the front of the engine block with a socket. Pull the pump out of the engine block and discard it.
    • 5Scrape the old gasket off the engine block with a wire brush and shop towel.
    • 6Place the o-ring onto the water pump and wet it with coolant.
    • 7Press the water pump into the Cadillac's engine block and tighten down the bolts with the socket to secure it to the block.
    • 8Rotate the tensioner pulley and place the drive belt onto the water pump pulley.
    • 9Place the radiator hose onto the water pump and use the clamp and pliers to secure it.
    • 10Drain the radiator coolant back into the radiator via the filler spout located on top of the radiator.
