    The water pump is behind the timing cover. Esssentially - you need to remove (replace) the timing belt to replace the water pump. This is not a very easy do-it-yourself job unless you are an experienced technician. Serious damage could result from removing a timing belt without the proper know-how. Also, the labor guide calls for 5 hours - so it's not a quick and easy job, either.
