96 Ford Ranger water pump replacement Sign In

1996 Ford Ranger 4 cylinder, what's the easiest way to replace water pump? Do you have to mess with timing belt?
On the left inlet side there is a coupling that attaches water hose to pump. Not mentioned in repair manual anywhere and seems easier to loosen coupling to replace pump.
Any help out there. Thanks
Randy

Here are the instructions for doing that.
You have to remove the timing belt cover but not the belt.

Thanks for responding. I know the manual says to remove timing belt cover, in order to do this you have to unhook a/c compressor and steering pump from mounting brackets to move out of way. Now.. it also says to remove lower radiator hose from water pump right, well hose does not directly mount on water pump, there is a hard coupler behind the alternator that connects lower hose to water pump. I found that you can loosen coupler mounting bracket and slide coupler back a little and pump will slide out easily without messing with all the other stuff. I just finished hooking back up and have not tested for leaks yet. Will let you know if all works ok. Thanks, Randy

I just had to do the same thing. I though I had a water pump leak, but it ended up being the hard connector attached to the water pump/lower radiator outlet. Attached to this piece is the outlet for the heater. That part just rusted through.

Problem was, I could not for the life of me figure out how to get that off. None of the manuals talked about it, as well as the diagram attached above. I knew I had to replace it so I cut it in half and the pump slid out. Once it was it it was easy to figure out how it attached.

My ranger has about 100500 miles, so I figure what the hell, I had it off so I replaced the water pump, the serpintine belt, the tensioner, as well as both hoses.

It wasn't hard after figuring out how to get the damn pipe off.
