Easy enough to do for a wrenching semi-rookie?

Is it just the gasket - or potentially a problem with the water pump itself? It never made that ugly noise that my mustang made when the water pump snapped apart. It just leaks around the pump itself.

Anything I should be aware of before I take it apart? I figure you just take the fan off, the pulley behind it.. then the bolts for the water pump.. have a new gasket ready, clean the surfaces and put it all back together, no?

carefully inspect the front cover for corrosion
if it rots through your coolant ends up in the oil pan

thanks for the reply m j -- will make sure it's in good condition.

Judging from the amount of replies, this should be a piece of cake. I just like to ask if there's anything I should expect/potentially fuck up before I start. :p
