So the instructions say i have to remove the fan assembly. Seems like you guys said I just had to remove the belt and the pump.
One generic tip for removing and reinstalling items that have varying length bolts is this.
Before starting, get a scrap piece of cardboard, or styrofoam. Use a marker to draw a rough outline of the part, putiting small circles for each bolt, number them if you need to. Then, as you remove each blot, push it into the matching hole in the carboard or foam.
This way, come reassembly, theres no doubt about which bolt goes where.

I swapped it out, and yes what GLHS said would help a great deal. What I did is got the new water pump, and everybolt I took off i put it on the new waterpump so I would know where they are to go when installing. I replaced my water pump in about 2 hrs.
