The water pump is driven by the timing belt. That is the belt that turns the camshaft. The entire front (Driver's side) of the engine must be dis-assembled and the cam timing must be re-set. It is not the kind of job a back-yard guy can do unless he is very familiar with this job and has the engine-specific tools required to set the cam timing. if the job is done and the cam timing is wrong, the valves will smash into the tops of the pistons when the engine is turned over. This pretty much destroys the top-end of the engine. Buy a repair manual and the right tools.

On my 1995 Eagle Summit the water pump is driven by a drive belt that goes around the crankshaft pulley,alternator pulley and water pump pulley. No need to remove timing belt or cover for that matter.
