The water pump is located behind the timing belt cover plate. In order to replace the pump you must drain the radiator fluid by disconnecting the lower hose (not easy and very messy). Next step is to remove the cooling fan assembly (be sure to disconnect the battery to prevent the fan from accidently turning on). Remove the serpentine belt by loosening the tension pully, remove the the tension pulley, remove the large plate (approx. 9 10mm bolts to remove. Next step is to remove the water pump (three 10mm bolts. Replacing the water pump is easy, getting the timing belt back on is the difficult part. I would continue with the re-assembly but I didn't do it correctly, so the car is sitting in my garage because I believe either the crankshaft of valve pully moved why re-assembling and the car won't start. Calling in a professional and will update answer once this has been resolved.

Real method -

4 hours standard labor, OEM part - 5003085AA, around $125

1. Drain cooling system

The first and most obvious method would be to disconnect the lower radiator hose.

2. Remove upper radiator cross-member

4 screws, contains hood latch.

3. Remove radiator cooler fan module.

4 screws, 2 clips, 2 "air shields"

4.remove timing cover

11 screws for upper, 1 screw for lower.

5. Allign camshaft timing marks

Upper right gear, mark on gear, between marks on rear timing cover. Do not loosen the camshaft sprockets.

6. Remove the timing belt tensioner and timing belt

plunger, bottom left. When the plunger is compressed into the tensioner body, install a pin through the body and plunger to retain the position of the plunger until it is reinstalled. You will need to compress the plunger in a vise. Make sure you mark the running direction of the timing belt, it matters.

7. Remove water pump mounting bolts

center pulley, three bolts

8. Clean all O-ring surfaces on new pump and cover.

9. Wet new O-ring with water. (Keep the new O-ring free of oil or grease)

10. Reinstall pump to housing and tighten pump mounting bolts to 12 Nm or 105 inch lbs. (not ft. lbs.)

11. Make sure sprocket marks are still alligned.

Install timing belt starting at the crankshaft sprocket going counter-clockwise. Maintain tension on the belt as it is positioned around the tensioner pulley.

12. Holding the tensioner pulley against the belt, install the tensioner into the housing and tighten to 28 Nm or 250 inch lbs (again, not ft. lbs.) When the tensioner is in place, pull the retaining pin to allow the tensioner to extend.

13. Rotate the crankshaft sprocket 2 revolutions and check the timing marks on the camshafts and crankshaft. The marks should line up in their respective locations. If they don't, try again.

14. Refill the cooling system, start it up, and bleed the air out with a 6-point box wrench or a 6-point socket.
