Hello all,

I have read the the cooling tread and I make to make sure its really that easy. I am going to try and replace my water pump today and I want to see if there is anything I should be aware of. Thanks

That took less than 10 seconds to find.

Just replaced mine a couple weeks ago. The only "problem" (which really wasn't a problem) I ran into was scraping the old gasket off. It was a pain in the a$$. lol I used some WD-40 to help out a little.

^^ Buy a gasket scrapper or puddy knife. It can be a pain sometimes.

I just replaced mine on Sunday. It was really easy.

To make gasket removal much easier, remove the 10mm holding the resevoir in place and bend the notch holding it in with a large screwdriver. Then pull the resevoir up and lay ot over the front valve cover.
