It's actually not a hard job to do on these motors (2200 4 cylinder)

1. with the serpentine belt still in place take a wrench and break loose the 3 bolts holding the pulley on the water pump.

2. remove the serpentine belt by relieving the tensioner pulley. ( just takes a standard ratchet)

3. remove the alternator, there are three bolts holding the alternator in place,

two on the side that the belt is on (one on top of the alternator and one under it) and one on the lower back side of it under a bracket, then just move it out of your way (you dont even have to disconnect it).

4. remove the 3 bolts on the water pump pulley, remove the pulley.

5. break loose the 4 bolts holding the water pump to the motor, unthread them alittle to let the old coolent drain out of the motor past the pump, them remove the pump.

6. remove all the old gasket from the motor surface, use the new gasket that comes with the new pump and apply RTV to both sides of the new gasket.

7. install the new water pump by reversing the steps for removal, fill the car back up to spec with Dex-a-cool, you may wanna drive it around the block after filling to get the air out of the system, then recheck the coolant level.

then you are done!
