I would go to You-Tube and watch a video on this, if this is the one I'm thinking of, changing the water pump on this is quite involved. You would want to change the timing belt and pulleys and tensioners at the same time, which is recommended to do so.

Ok, not the one I was thinking of, so just remove the bolt from the center of the idler pulley to remove.

No video on YouTube for GTP only non-supercharged.

Can't you get to the bolt to remove?

You need to unbolt the power steering pump and move it out of the way about 2 inches. The holes in the pulley will allow you to access the bolts. It's NOT necessary to remove the power steering pump from the car. Just remove the bolts and move it out of the way. Then you can get to that last bolt on the water pump. HTH. -Jim
