Until you remove the cooling fan shroud you probably can't even see the w/pump. First, disconnect the air intake from the air cleaner. Then remove the air cleaner housing from the shroud. The shr0oud is easily removed by undoing the 2 or 3 screws that are down near the bottom. After you get all the plastic out of the way, it shud be pretty clear sailing. Slacken the tension from the serpentine belt tensioner and remove the belt. Now you have to drain the coolant, remove the w/p hoses and the pump.
Havn't done it yet on my '98 but have had to replace the alternator, and the foreplay is the same. Good Luck! MCP
