Not hard. You have to go in through the right (passenger's side) wheel well. Remove the wheel and tire assembly and it's right there. The hardest thing is you have to swing the power steering pump out of the way. One of the water pump bolts is behind the power steering pump. The factory shop manual will tell you to unbolt the power steering pump and move it out of the way. Don't. You can loosen the top bolt and remove the bottom bolt. Then swing the bottom of the power steering pump toward the rear of the car. If you remove the top bolt on the power steering pump it's a bugger to get back in!! Also, loosen the water pump pulley bolts, but don't remove them, before you remove the serpentine belt. Once they're loose, then remove the serpentine belt. Then remove the pulley. HTH. -Jim
