Trying to find out where the water pump is located on 2000 ford contour

Your water pump is internal. It will be close to the center of the engine and it will have a pully bolted to it. There should be 4 bolts holding the pully on. remove these 4 bolts and the bolts holding the pump on will be exposed. remove those bolts as well(5-7) of them. And your pump will be free. you may have to use a small flathead screwdriver to pry it out. Be sure not to leave any bearings behind when you remove it. clean entire area with puddy knife or razor blade before installing new one. Install is reverse. Hope this helps.

How to replace water pump on 1998 ford contour?

remove the three bolts from the water pump pully....then remove the water pump...once the pump is out you will have to rotate the pump 180 degrees to get it out of the engine compartment....when you go to install the new one use a tiny bit of silocone to hold the rubber gasket in place so your not pulling your hair
