rolled washer up on its back used pliers to slide 2 hose clamps back on the hoses. pulled both hoses off pump. There are 2 metal type latches holding pump in place. Remove those by prying off with a screwdriver then you can remove the pump by lifting it off the motor shaft. Then install new pump on shaft making sure to align the square shoulders on pump shaft with water pump slots. Then just reverse the removal process hook water up and test to make sure no leaks. My pump had been dropped sometime between the factory and my getting it so I had to glue it back together where it had separated. Easier to fix than to send it back for replacement.
