Hello,

Before removing the water pump you will have to drain the coolant. Remove the drive belt and the radiator fan.

Remember to only work on the cooling system when the engine is cool.

Here is a helpful guide:

It will be a good idea to change the thermostat and gasket as you will have all the components apart.

I have attached the complete replacement procedure below.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.
