this is easy! the reason i know is i have a 97 sunfire

all you have to do is the following:

loosen the belt tensioner by using a 15mm wrench, once the belt is loose then slide it off.

drain the rad fluid from the drain clock, loosen the 4 bolts on the water pump, don't remove it all the way other wise you will have a huge mess on your hands, put a pail under the water pump and let it drain.

once it is all drained out remove all 4 bolts from the water pump and remove it, clean the old gasket off the engine block and to add the new water pump just do the reverse steps.

The only part that is needed to replace your 1997 Pontiac rear brakes is a break assembly kit. The brake assembly kit will have everything you need.

You must first remove the trunk door facia. (This is the part with the "Pontiac" lights in it.) Then you can get to the bulb to replace it.
