Default Do you have to remove the timing belt to change water pump?

Im changing my water pump, do you have to take out
the entire timing belt, or can you sneak it through.
I dont want to mess with the aligments of the gears
and what not...

I did you a favor and edited your title. In the future, the title is there so people have some idea what they're clicking, please use it properly and don't use text-message language. Thanks

I would be extremely worried about removing the water pump and keeping everything aligned. Also, I don't see how you will be able to reinstall the tensioner without completely removing the t-belt to compress and re-pin the tensioner before the reinstall.

Check you timing marks before and after pulling the pin on the tensioner.... I'm speaking from experience on that one.

Lots. The dealer will usually do the water pump and replace the t-belt at the same time.

I know that dealerships vary but I was quoted around 750 for timing belt water pump and new thermostat. I did the belt and pump with the help from a friend for ~300 parts and gas to drive there. It took about 2 hours. See if there's somebody in your area that would be willing to help.
