    Get the tool (borrow, rent, or buy) and it's an easy R&R. Make sure to verify with the dealer whether you need to buy a new waterpump housing though before you get started (there was a design change). The time to find out is NOT when the whole thing's apart and the new pump WON'T fit.

    WAS THIS DESIGN CHANGE IN '95, AS THE YEAR OF YOU'RE CAR, OR '97?

    As I recall, the change was in the '94-'95 range but you can tell by merely looking at the color of the pump housing. As I recall, the new version is "black" and the original was "silver" but don't rely on my memory, a quick call to the Cadillac dealer parts department will give you the accurate info.
