Yes, it looks pretty easy. You need a water pump, gasket, and maybe new hoses while you are at it.

It looks like the trickiest part is getting the fan clutch and pulley off. You need special tool 11 5 030 or "water pump pliers" and tool 11 5 040 or a 32mm slim wrench.

Just take everything off and put it back the way you found it. Torques are:

Water pump to timing cover, 8mm bolts: 22 2 Nm (16 1 ft lbs.)

Water pump to timing cover, 6mm bolts: 9 1 Nm (6.5 0.5 ft lbs.)

Pulley to water pump: 9 1 Nm (6.5 0.5 ft lbs.)

Fan to water pump: 40 + 10 Nm (29 + 7 ft lbs.)

Good luck,
Jon
