Water Pump replacement for 2007 Jeep JK Wrangler 3.8L V6

Has anyone replaced a waterpump for their jeep? If so, how easy is it and can you post a write up? Thanks....

i dont have any pics. very easy.

just be mindful not to overtighten the bolts.

leave belt on while breaking the bolts loose. it helps...

used a screwdriver leveraged between the bolt heads and the center stub of the pump to keep the pump from turning while i broke the bolts loose. then took the belt off.

i dont recall anything special. didn't take any pics.

drained radiator into huge pan. reused most of the coolant. got one jug of HOAT from the parts store and topped it off.

The other info I posted did not help?

Not sure if they are out yet but from you local parts store a haynes/chiltons manual is a good 15-20 purchase.

I have a done a bunch on the old 4.0L don't see the 3.8 being much different. I would suggest replacing the thermostat while you are at it. If you are mechanically inclined you will not have any problems. Make sure you keep track of where each bolt came out from because if it's like the 4.0 not all the bolts are the same length. Good luck post up any questions.
