Just one thing I might add as step one.... And I feel like being "Capt. Obvious" but I'm sure someone may neglect it.... Take the belt off the car first....

I had to replace this when my radiator froze (I should've flushed it instead of listening to someone else that there was enough antifreeze fr a good ratio). It's actually fairly simple. In fact, replacing the radiator and water pump were easier than replacing the thermostat.

You will need something to pry the tensioner back to loosen the serpintine belt a pry bar or a 3/8" drive breaking bar does the trick and this would be on a 3.4

Leave the belt on till you get the bolts loose then you can remove the belt.

Yeah I suppose that would work also to get the belt out of the way.
But once the water pump and pulley have been installed your going to have to pull the tensioner forward to be able to put the belt back on.

for the 3800 guys you might as well replace the coolant elbows too cuz they right there in the upper intake manifold and water pump. you do not need to take off the tire like the direction said. it's a lot easier removing the water pump from the top.

I have to replace the water pump gasket on my 2003 SS. Don't you have to remove the power steering pump to get the water pump off or is there an easier way? That last water pump bolt is hidden behind the steering pump pulley wheel.

Edit: Just finished replacing water pump and yes, I had to remove the power steering pump to get the rearmost water pump bolt out. It might have been easier to get the bottom PS pump bolt out if I removed the wheel and attacked it from below but I somehow managed it from above by feel. Funny thing, almost all the accessory bolts are metric, but the small water pump bolts are 3/8 on my car. The 10mm socket kind of works but it's got enough play that if the bolts are tight you could easily round off a bolt head.
