The water pump is located on the passenger side of the vehicle. You'll need to take off the plastic brackets that are placed on top of it with a 10mm wrench or socket. The valve cover will have to be removed too and should be a number 10mm also. Don't forget to mark your cam and gear pulleys or else you would have to retime the whole engine again. Make aliagnment marks to the gear and the timing belt and you should be alright. The belt tensioner will have to be loosen so that you'll have access to the water pump.I think the water pump is bolted on with 12mm bolts and should have at least 4 to 5 bolts to remove. It might be sort of stubborn to remove, but it will eventually come out. The lower plastic brackets might have to be remove also, to gain access to the pump. Apply the RTV sealants to the new pump and make the replacement in the reverse order that was taken out. Realiagn the gear to the timing belt and retension the tensioner pulley and your all set to mount the plastic covers. Have fun!
