You need the special water pump socket to make the job easier, and remember that to remove the pump it turns CLOCKWISE.

Just remove the intake duct. Then you can get at the front cover bolts. As Charles mentioned, clockwise to remove and counter clockwise to install but I think it only requires about 1/8 - 1/4 turn. Here is a picture of the special socket needed to remove and install it. This it one I made to give you an idea of what it looks like. You can get cheap stamped steel one from "Lysle" for about $15 - $20 or a good beefy machined one from Snap-on for about $75. http://www.geocities.com/grandolfo/

I know that AutoZone, Pep Boys, and Murray's all had loaner tools available for a small deposit. Use it to remove and install the pump core, return it, and get your $10-$20 back. I don't know if Napa carries loaners or not.
