Where do you remove the water pump from on a 1997 Dodge Intrepid?

OKay, speaking from personal experience...(assuming it's a 3.5L....)...DON'T DO IT YOURSELF....it's a royal PITA...

The water pump is located behind the timing belt cover. You'll have to remove the radiator, fan pack, crankshaft pulley (assuming it will even come off easily)...this is a VERY difficult repair for the backyard mechanic. 3 days and lots of fooling around to get the crankshaft pulley off (some call it a harmonic balancer)...it's really easy to mess it up....TAKE IT TO A PROFESSIONAL.
