like any other cam belt/water pump- get your wrenches out and start hacking away- disconnect the battery- pay attention to the alignment of everything- do not move anything while the belt is off- DO NOT MOVE- when the water pump housing goes back on, make sure you have a good sealant on the gasket- piece of cake! hopefully

jam is right on...get a coffee can for bolts...put bolts back in a few threads when you can so you know which is which...bust your knuckles before you begin and get it over with...recommend a flush of coolant and re fill with Ethylene Glycol instead of the green propylene glycol, if you have pets they will lap up the green stuff...dead puppies aren't much fun, and please capture and dispose of all used coolant properly. You must drain first anyway

Find on the web "TEAM CAPRI CLUB" they have info and printable instructions that are helpfull if you don't have a manual . Put motor on #1 TDC and don't move anything. If you do you can always re align everything. After removing the front motor mount you can raise the motor a little for easier working . If the tension spring is a little weak you can push the tension roller over by hand or the belt will be loose after a while . I hope you have small hands, Its tight to work on .
