Drain cooling system
Remove serpentine belt
Unbolt the water pump pulley; the water pump is behind
Unbolt water pump from engine
Scrape old gasket off engine
Install new pump and gasket in reverse order (make sure you use a torque wrench)
Refill with fresh coolant
With radiator cap off and bleed screws loose, turn car on and let it idle
When coolant starts pouring out of radiator put cap back on, when it flows out of screws tighten them.
When car reaches normal operating temp turn it off and let it cool down (completely).
Re-check your coolant level and add as necessary.
You're pretty much done.
