It's for an MR2, but the engines are the same.

I recommend getting your own manual to cross reference, as I found that the BGB doesn't always have the best methods of getting the job done.

Here is a great reference for your engine. You may find a strange similarity to your car.

The water pump is going to be a big job. You have to pull the timing belt cover. Are you sure it is the water pump?

Yeah, but it has the right way of getting it done, and that's usually the best place to start if you're learning.

hmm, how did you decide it was the water pump? Usually the bearings will leak fluid past but it never leaked anything. Anyway, let me know if you guys need some help. I can save you alot of time.

The head gasket change thing that I posted for you has all of the details on how to get the timing belt cover off. You have to remove the motor mount, which requires some work.
