Thanks for the directions.I was hoping it would tell you how to pass the waterpump out of the engine compartment but it doesn't. Would you know how this is done?
For the clearance the water pump should clear by turning it slightly to the middle of the engine (where the most clearance is seen) then pull it out.
You do not need to jack up the engine or anything. Some people have had success out the bottom but it's easier out of the top.
I'll try to find a video or detailed pictures to show the best way.

Best way to remove the pulley is to loosen the bolts before you remove the belt. If all of the items in the removal instructions are removed it should come up with decent clearance.
