@crewzin: You must be kidding right? Did you look at that link at all? Do no attempt to change your pump by these instructions. For starters your list of tools will be a LOT longer than this and a pair of pliers will not be on that list. The actual event involves removing a wheel, the a/c compressor and the radiator. None of which are mentioned in the eHow instructions, not to mention that for some reason eHow refuses to include pictures in any of their instructions (HORRIBLE website imho).

For anyone else that lands here trying to learn how to do this try this link instead.

Most of us post if we think we know but rarely hunt it down if we don't.

Thanks CREWZIN for always trying to be there for everyone.

Not trying to start an argument, but I've changed a couple of them without removing any of the above mentioned items. It's tight, but doable. Getting the bottom hose off is the biggest challenge.
