Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Justanswer. Thank you for your question and I will assist you with your concern.

The water pump belt is a fairly easy repair, all you need to is remove the shield above it and once its out of the way place a wrench on the tensioner pulley and rotate it towards the water pump to relieve the tension and pull the belt off. See the diagram in the link below for which pulley to rotate.
