changing water pump

Has anyone done this on there own? Sure I can remove it. The thing I see as a problem could be reinstalling the belt on my own. Any tips would be great.

I just did mine last month. Its very easy and will only take about an hour or two. Only problem I ran into was the metal tube running into the pump had rotted so bad I couldn't reuse it so I had to substitute. Just follow the manual and you will be good.

Most of the Jeeps with serpentine belts have a little illustration on the core support or fan shroud that shows where the belt treads thru.

i just did it as well along with the theromstat. cheap and easy. 2 belts on an 89 2.5l. I suggest flushing out the whole system while you have it apart.

yeah, it's not too horrible of a job. while you're down there, you might as well replace the timing chain too.
