As it happens, I'm half-way through the job right now, though
I'm doing the water pump as an aside to timing belt replacement.
I believe you can do the water pump alone without any special
tools, but you do have to remove a lot of stuff just for
access (all the other belts, the hydraulic pump, bumper,
grille and intercooler). If you don't encounter any major hitches,
it will probably take 3-4 hours -- very little of it actually
removing and replacing the pump itself.
I got my replacement pump (Beck and Arnley) for $44.00 -- I think
I could have got one for about $10.00 less, but this store
was closer. I was quoted up to $80, so shop around.
Good luck, and send me e-mail if you have any questions.
PS: Both the water pump and the timing belt looked in good
condition -- oh well ..
