[Vwdiesel] Water pump replacement

You could go one of two ways - either you can
1 - remove the alternator and the bracket and then pull off the water
pump with the housing. If you have A/C then that needs to come off, or
at least out of the way as well.


2 - remove the timing belt and then the intermediate shaft pulley
which then allows you to pull off the water pump without removing the
pump housing.

Of course with both ways the accessory belt(s) needs to come off, and
to remove the timing belt the covers both have to come off first. The
water pump pulley also gets taken off and put back on the new pump.
Should also replace the thermostat at the same time, but that's a
piece of cake - just two bolts and work the housing for it off.

Just depends on what else needs to be done for which way would make more sense.
