Just did it today, sorry, no pics, but actually easy. 2 bolts for engine mount next to reservoir, loosen belt from tensioner, take off tensioner (3 bolts), jack up motor, take out water pump with pulley still on (3 bolts). I tried to do it for about a hour then I thought about jacking the motor up and it came out and back in in less then 5 minutes. Good luck!
