Q: timing belt / water pump replacement on 2002 Volvo V70

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I bought a new water pump for my V70 wagon. Can you direct me to detailed instructions on how to remove the timing belt so I can change out the water pump? The timing belt was changed at 110,000 miles. The car now has 174,000 miles.

If you are going to do this job, invest in a repair manual. It is inexpensive, $27.00 at alldatadiy.com, and the info is straight from Volvo. If you don't get the belt on correctly, you can damage the engine, costing $$$! You are going to have the timing belt partially off, so it is worth replacing at this time.
