Water pump

Need advice on how to change the water pump on my ZX5,2.0. And do I have to deal with the timing belt?

No timing belt involved.

Open the petcock and drain the coolant
Break the pulley bolts loose (using 2 wrenches works well)
Remove the accessory belt
Remove the pulley (may have to loosen/remove a motor mount and lower the engine)
Remove the pump bolts
Change the pump
and you'll know where to go from here.

Ok thanks. I had a guy look at it and he's wanting to charge me around $350 because he says that he has to deal with timing belt. I didn't think that was true because I can see belt and water pump

Find a more honest guy.

IIRC book time is something like 1.5hrs and the part is under $60.

a lot of cars you do, but not on these.

Watch for the screws when you put the pulley back on and put the water pump on the housing. the documented TQ is IMHO way to high for the size of the bolt and the material.

I have had problems with my pump. a number of years ago the bolts backed out of the pulley causing large problems because the pulley came off and broke the belt.

Also during my rebuild stripped 2 of the 4 bolts that mounts the water pump to the "bracket".

So use lock tight (Blue) and make sure you correctly TQ things down if you do it your self.
