Your Sable has two motor's, OHV and DOHV. Since you did not say what motor you have I will give you the removal of the OHV.

1. Disconnect the neg battery cable
2. Drain cooling system
3. Loosen four bolts securing the water pump pulley to the water pump hub
4. Remove the accessory drive belts
5. Remove the automatic belt tensioner
6. Disconnect and remove the heater hose from water pump
7. Remove the engine control sensor wiring from the locating stud bolt, if equipped
8. Remove the water pump retaining bolts and lift the water pump out.
