Unless you are an able mechanic do not attempt this.The timimg belt drives the water pump.

Set the engine on top dead center. Align the timing marks, use whiteout to mark their position Remove the fan belt and fan. Remove the top radiator hose. Remove the thermostat housing assembly. Remone the fan belt bracket. Remove the timing cover. Remove the two camshaft pulleys. Remove the back plate of the timing cover. You can now get to the water pump.

Good luck.

Tony.

you shouldn't have to bother the camshaft pulleys , having the timing belt drive the pump wouldn't make the job any haqrder
