you have to ideally remove front grill, rad and slam panel to get easier access. piece of piss after that. loosen n remove belts for alternator n powersteering pump turn crank by hand to align flywheel holes, fit locking pin. should also be lined up now for camshaft pulley pin hole and fuel pump pin hole. fit all locking pins, loosen cambelt tensioner, remove cambelt, remove water pump. replace pump, belt and tensioner with new. refit in reverse order check tension of cam belt, remove pins, turn 2 full revolutions, re pin to check nothings moved/jumped, remove pins and re fit every thing else!
2 hours plus refill antifreeze
