The water pump is located somewhere on the front of the engine. First, remove the fan shrowd. Once located and the engine is cool to the touch, you will have to drain all of the existing coolant from the radiator. Then remove (and possibly replace) your radiator hoses (upper and lower). Remove (and possibly replace) all accessory belts. Using a rachet and the appropriate socket, remove the bolts holding the water pump in place. (Make sure to purchase the water pump gasket and sealant if your replacement does not include these items.) Installation is done in reverse. Be sure to clean any engine components that have been drenched with coolant as it can cause belt squeeking or component failure down the road. Good luck!

the pump looks really easy on the s/c drain the coolant, take off the belt, take off any hoses that connect to the pump, unbolt it, clean the mating surfaces, put the new pump on with a new gasket, put it back together, and refill the coolant, making sure to get the air bubbles out of the engine
