Pretty easy job to do. Remove the battery and windshield washer bottle. Disconect lower radiator hose and drain coolant. I found that easier than trying to loosen the petcock. Release belt from pulley, take out all of the bolts around the pump there are at least three different sizes including a couple torx head. Try and remember where they all go. Clean the gasket surface thoroughly put thin even coat high temp silicone on both surfaces of gasket replace gasket and pump. Installation is in reverse of removal. Add coolant. Your Done. I believe I got a great price from for the pump.
