Water pump isnt too bad. Just disconnect the battery as usual, remove the pump pulley bolts and disconnect the drive belt. Drain the cooling system. Remove the pulley from the water pump and then remove the water pump bolt and water pump from the engine as well.
You'll have to replace the water pump gasket too. You're spose to apply Permatex Lock Nut to the threads of each water pump bolt as well. Then refill the cooling system and put the drive belt back and run the car and check for coolant leaks to make sure its all ok. Oh and re-connect the battery after you refill the cooling system.

I also have recently noticed a rattling from my boot which I hear when I go over bumps and when my subs are on now too. Im not sure what it is yet though.... But it never used to rattle.

Also you may have a hole in your exhaust or something. Is the noise coming from the back of the exhaust or is the noise coming from halfway or something?

Well for the noise from your boot, check your number plate and make sure its screwed down tightly and is not vibrating when you go over the bump. Check theres nothing loose in the spare wheel well etc. as well.

Perhaps try taking your car to an exhaust place and asking what they think it is. They should have a quick listen and look for free and then advise you on the situation. It sounds like there is a hole in the cat or the exhaust pipe somewhere.

The sedans dont have a rear wiper motor though. Although my car does have all the wiring for rear wipers and washers...not sure where the wiring stops though....

oh yer 1 more prob i just thort of my heater dosn't work at all all i get is fezzing cold air thanks
First off for the boot noise. Perhaps try putting your sub in the boot and turning it on...then tracing the noise with your ears til you find where abouts its coming from.

As for the heater, is it just the heater or does the A/C not work either?
Remember it takes a while to warm the air up on cold mornings, takes mine 15 minutes or so.
