How do you replace the water pump on a 2000 Mazda Protege?

You have to take off the serpentine belts so that you can remove the pulley for the water pump. You also have to take off the cam head so that you can get to the timing belt case and remove the plastic splash guards in front of the water pump. Remove the timing belt, then there are 4 bolts attaching the water pump. Remove those bolts and then disconnect the water intake and put your new pump in and replace the timing belt. **Make sure that your timing marks are located where they need to be before replacing the timing belt.**
