I do not know which version engine you have so I am attaching 2 different diagrams. Unloosen the locking nut on the pulley with adjusting bolts and unloosen the adjusting bolts to release the tension.
To replace the water pump, you need to remove the timing belt.
1. Disconnect negative battery cable from jumper terminal. Remove upper radiator crossmember (may also be referred to as the engine compartment support). Remove electric cooling fan module with fans.
2. Remove accessory drive belts. Hold crankshaft damper stationary while removing center bolt.
Use gear puller to remove crankshaft damper. Remove the A/C belt guide/lift bracket.
3. Remove lower timing belt cover. Remove stamped steel (right side) timing belt cover. DO NOT remove the sealer on the stamped steel cover, as it is reusable.
4. Remove cast (left side) timing belt cover. If reusing old timing belt, mark belt direction of rotation for reinstallation.
5. Rotate crankshaft to align crankshaft sprocket timing mark with TDC mark on oil pump housing. Align camshaft sprockets with marks on rear covers.
6. Remove timing belt tensioner. Store with plunger facing up.
Remove timing belt.
CAUTION: The following procedure can only be used if camshaft sprockets have NOT been loosened or removed. If camshaft sprockets have been removed, special tools and timing procedure are required.
CAUTION: Align camshaft sprockets between marks on rear belt covers before removing timing belt, or damage to valves and pistons may occur.
CAUTION: When aligning timing marks, always rotate engine by turning crankshaft. Failure to do so will result in valve and/or piston damage.
CAUTION: When timing belt tensioner is removed from engine, always store tensioner with plunger facing up.
