Water Pump ReplacementI have not personally tried to replace a WP, but from what I understand, you must remove both the alternator and the air conditioner in order to even remove the WP housing. After you get that done, you still need to take apart the housing and then try to put it all back together.

ABOVE Response Not Quite.

The water pump on a 3.0 liter V6 lebaron is located internally. It is not just an accessory on the outside running off of your serpentine belt. It runs off of the Timing belt, and never sees the light of day. How Sad. :( Anyway, In order to change the water pump you must remove all pulleys and accsesories located out side the engine, Includes A/C componants as well. Support the engine, remove side engine mount. Remove crankshaft pulley and harmonic balencer. Once you have access to the timing covers, you can then remove the covers and unbolt the water pump. Change the timing belt while you change your water pump too. It will save you fr next time. (Make sure you clean off the old water pump gaskets while you are in here. If you don't you will leak water until you change it again.)

After reinstalatoin of all parts you will most likely have to RE-TIME the engine, as it most likely be off. You should tune it up here as well. (Plugs and Wires, ETC...) With the new quiet water pump and tune'd up car you'll think it was brand new.
