this is all from memory so, FIRST, remove serp belt, by unloading it at the auto tensioner, i use 3/8"breaker bar, if i remember right, next, drain out, coolant into pan by pulling raid plug out. hold the water pump from turning by insert straight screwdriver between two other bolts, catching the two bolts, so as when you go to remove one bolt it pulls against screwdriver on other bolts, do that to break all 4 loose, remove pump pulley. right there you have pump ready to be removed, i prefer to use 1/4" drive stuff in here. I think theres 4 bolts. remove pump. clean surface good, apply small light coating of form gasket on gasket, place onto, align holes, install new pump, install is reverse of removal. its not a hard one to do at all - i'v seen WAY worse
