The water pump is driven by the timing chain in front of the motor and cannot be directly seen under the hood. The back end of the pump is visible under the car. Passenegr side on bottom of the motor.

On the 4 cyl, it is near the timing chain housing. The actual pump is under a cover. See attached pic.

This is not a repair for home. It is very involved as the timing chain has to be removed. If there is an issue timing it again, you may bend valves adding to the expense
