It's about the easiest water pump you could ever have to change.
With the belt still on, loosen the water pump pulley bolts. Remove belt. Remove pulley. Remove the 5 bolts retaining the water pump, then pull the pump off the motor (coolant will then spill out). Clean off the old gasket. Put it all back together and fill the coolant.
These pumps normally take me about 15 minutes to change.
