Best Answer

it takes a special tool, about $38.00 at NAPA. Very easy to get to the pump, 6 small bolts, it is on the "BACK side" of the motor, opposite end of the main pulleys and belts. Drivers side. the watre pump is driven by a small belt coming off the front cam shaft. easiest water pump I was able to reach , but it takes a special six fingered tool to grab the six lugs, and i belive it is a counter colockwise turn about a 1/8 of a turn, and the pump just falls out.

the outer housing of the pump (pump cover) has a special neoprene gasket, which i reused. It was going to be a specail order part, this gasket did not come with the pump. this housing also has the thermostat in it, which has two seprate bolts and a separate gasket for the thermostat inlet.
