Once you take the housing off it's only two clips to remove the water pump from the motor, then two screws and two more clips to remove the motor itself. One issue I ran into was the new coupling was hard to put on, so the first time I did I overheated the motor because it was binding (was also very hard to get the motor back on). After taking it apart again, and slightly tapping both couplings with a hammer the motor went on very easy and washer works like a champ!
