I did exactly that but the belt will not come out. the tensioner or something else has to be moved to let the belt out!
It used to be on older models th pump had to be pulled. On this one once belt off the cam pulley, you have to work at pulley below and get the belt kind of on its side etc to slip it up/out

So, once the belt is off of the big cam pulley and off the tensioner pulley, the water pump belt can can be worked through and removed from all three pulleys?
Yes, a bit tight etc but will slip out
