What vehicle is it for ?

On at least some Mk. I's you need to pull the engine completely to get to the durn thing...

That means jacking it up, removing the wheels, the axles, disconnecting a cr@pload of hoses and wires, exhaust downtube, maybe inlet manifold(it's too easy to damage something on it, at least on the 1.4i) purging the coolant, removing the battery and battery box, the bonnet...

It's kind of a very uncomfortable sensation in the seating arraignment...

As it's a 'fairly involved' operation, it may make sense to do a few other jobs at the same time.
But the waterpump shouldn't be on that list, really.
