replace water pump 5.7l wk
 
hi, im having small leaks of coolant that i believe is coming from the water pump, 05 5.7l jeep grand cherokee. is there any write up or pictures showing or explaining how to go about changing it. i called the dealership parts 160, plus 295 labor. is this something that i could possibly do myself or would the dealership be better thanks.

Are you mechanically inclined? It's pretty simple and only took me 2 hours to be exact.

yes i believe i am, i mean i change my own break pads, and change the oil myself without problems, but i have never tackled anything where the belt travels thru, ie alt, water pump.. im also not sure what tools i would need. so im ready to try, also the dealership price is high for my budget right now, so if it somethingi can do , it would be great
