On 2.2L OHV engines # Disconnect the negative battery cable # Drain the coolant # Remove the coolant fan then remove the serpentine driveblet # Remove the water pump pulley from the front of the water pump # Remove the coolant reservoir hoses # Detach the water pump retaining bolts and remove the pump from the car.If necessary strike the pump with a softface hammer to break the gasket seal
