To keep from messing something up, get a manual from AUTOBOOKSONLINE.COM

take off top and bottom radiator hoses at engine. remove bolt from "dog bone" on engine side and flip forward for access. remove belt cover. remove belt. remove four bolts on back side of water pump housing (side with water neck for hose). remove water pump back plate. GET SPECIAL TOOL FOR WATER PUMP REMOVAL, looks like a giant socket with teeth or a castle turret(about $20). this socket fits over pump from inside of housing, go through the back side where the back plate was. 1/4 turn to remove pump with pully attached and pull out through the back. remove and replace o ring that will still be in housing where you removed pump. install in reverse order of above.
