    I strongly recommend a repair manual to help with this. You can pay a small amount for good content online: http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online

    Thank-You as I don't have a manual, they did not give me one when I bought the car! I will look into that further!

    Thanks so much!

    I just finished replacing the water pump. It was a lot easier than I thought. First remove the cross bar, than the battery. Next remove the fuse box (one nut on top and it pulls upward) move it to where the battery used to be. Next remove the reservoir (two nuts on top, two hoses. and pull upwards). Loosen the four bolts on the water pump pulley, don't remove them yet. Next remove the serpentine belt (loosen tension pulley). Next remove the pulley on the pump. Now your ready to remove the pump. Clean old gasket off and install new gasket/pump. Put all back together by going in reverse. Be sure to write down/draw how the belt configures.
