How to install water pumps in 13 easy steps !
Step 1.) safety first - Always wait until the engine is cool before working on any part of the cooling system.

Step 2.) Remove the belt drive components following the vehicle manufacturer's recommended procedures.

Step 3.) Remove the hose attached to the water pump. Be aware that a considerable amount of coolant can pour out of the hose when you take it off.

Step 4.) Loosen the bolts and remove the old water pump.

Step 5.) Remove the old seal/gasket or old sealant remains and make sure the mounting surface is clean.

Step 6.) Before installing the new water pump, inspect the other cooling system service parts: coolant, hoses, thermostat and pressure cap(s).

Step 7.) Install the new water pump. Do not force the pump on by striking the pump shaft. Old gaskets and seals should be replaced by new ones. Carefully follow installation instructions. Only apply sealant if specifically recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. Put an even bead of sealant along the edge of the part, but don't use too much sealant.
If you do get too much sealant on the part, wipe off the excess before mounting the new water pump. Too much sealant compromises the correct installation and will break off within the cooling system, contaminating it. Sealants are also made with different drying rates, so respect the sealant's printed instructions.

Step 8.) Tighten the bolts evenly to the manufacturer's torque specifications.

Step 9.) Re- attach the hose.

Step 10.) Refill the cooling system with the correct vehicle manufacturer's recommended coolant.

Step 11.) Manually rotate the pump and make sure it rotates freely.

Step 12.) Make sure the belt drive system that will drive the new water pump is in perfect condition and installed following the vehicle manufacturer's recommended procedures. The belt drive system works hand in hand with the water pump. That is why according to gates, changing the water pump, belt and other drive components at the same time is good preventive maintenance.

Step 13.) Do a final visual inspection to ensure there are no leaks after the cooling system refill. When a water pump is new, some seepage from the weep hole is normal as it takes about ten minutes of operation for the pump's internal mechanical seal to properly seat itself (break-in period). More pronounced seepage and drips from the weep hole after this break-in period or leakage from the mounting surface are abnormal and signal part failure or faulty installation. Keep in mind that some leaks will become obvious when the engine is cold, but others only when it is hot.
