First you need drain coolant. remove serp.belt. remove the fan clutch there is a tool for this but a craftsman strap wrench will hold the pulley just as well u need a 27mm. wrench for the nut and rad. shroud. next remove 4 bolts that hold a/c comp. to top of intake area. there is a wire to unhook lay a/c comp.to side. disconnect batt. and remove alternator 2 bolts lay to side and then remove aluminum bracket. now you have access to by pass hose and clear view of water pump.change bypass hose now you will thank me later then just remove the bolts holding pump fast and remove metal tube in pump and remove pump clean off old gasket. put new gasket on new pump with high tack sealer or other sealer install pump. replace o-ring on metal tube and put some silicone sealer on it as well. reinstall bracket alt. a/c comp. and wires that were un plugged. good luck
