Do NOT use a prybar between the water pump housing and the engine block to separate the two components; this can cause scratches and/or gouges, which can prevent proper sealing.
Do not disassemble the water pump; if the water pump is damaged or defective, the entire unit is replaced.
The drive belt can be used to hold the fan stable while loosening the mounting fasteners
Loosen the fan bolts, then either remove the drive belt before the fan and shroud ...
... or wait to remove the belt, along with the water pump pulley
Once the cooling fan and shroud are removed, access can be gained to many of the engine components, including the water pump
Be sure to install the two rubber seals between the water pump, oil pump and cylinder head before installing the timing belt cover-1.3L and 1.6L TFI engines
The 1.6L MFI engine uses only one rubber seal between the oil pump and water pump
