Are you sure the water pump needs to be replaced? There's a special tool needed to hold the pump pulley (or using the drive belt to prevent the pulley from turning while loosening pulley bolts to remove the pulley before the pump bolts can be removed to remove the pump. Before this can be done the cooling system is drained, right front strut mount and strut bracket needs to be removed.

The special tool is just a flexible spanner wrench made to grab onto two bolts or their bolt holes to prevent the pulley from turning.

replace the pump from the bottom , tighting the pulley bolts can be done by putting a large screw drive between 2 bolts.

You might reconsider replacement before summer comes around for at least one good reason. As summer starts and a/c cooling is needed, a larger load is placed on the cooling system requiring cooling fans to run. A/c use needs cooling immediately as compressed refrigerant gases create heat that's sent to the condenser coils sitting in front of the radiator. Without a cooling fan running the varying airflow heated from the condenser coils flows into the radiator. The radiator has its own job to radiate hot coolant and now hot air from the condenser coils isn't helping. Cooling fans run to keep air flowing through both units but the added heat from a/c use is causing a greater heat load on the cooling system. Good cooling systems deal with this without problems. Add high summer temperatures and humidity levels leads to cooling systems over heating. Over heating means the cooling systems are pressurized to the maximum and any weaknesses not seen over the winter period suddenly show up in stop and go traffic on a warm day. A leak in the water pump that miraculously disappeared in the winter may just announce itself at the worst possible moment - when you're in your best clothes trying to make a meeting and comfortably cooled off with the a/c running when the cooling system blows coolant and the temperature gauge redlines....................

There is a TSB about the water pump leaking... I had mine replaced under warranty. And yes I have a 2007 also that is out of standard warranty. They replaced it a the same time that they replaced the timing chain under warranty... also a TSB on that.
