First, put a wrench on the belt tensioner to remove the tension and take off the belt. You then need to block up the engine and remove the passenger side motor mount. You can then get the water pump out. Be careful to bleed the system once you refill it - it is prone to capturing air and may overheat.

there is one bolt on the left side that is somewhat behind a pully. I don't know how to get that one out. I am looking for an answer. sorry

The bolt on left is behind the P/S pump. The holes in the p/w pully line up with the top bolt and the bottom bolt in the power steering pump bracket. remove them and the pump moves out of the way.

its under the car on the drivers side about where the door closes. Simple wrenches will get the job done.
