Changing water pump 3.3 V6 need help.

I am in the process of changing the timing belt and water pump on my 2005 Camry 3.3 V6. I have everything disassembled to the point that I need to remove the water pump, that is leaking. It seems that the back cover for the timing belt covers is covering the top of the water pump. Do I have to remove both of the camshaft pulleys and that cover just to get the water pump out?? If so is there an easy way to remove the pulleys without damaging anything?

By the way thanks in advance for helping the new guy to this forum.

I kept digging on the old interweb and I found a pretty good article on this subject.

Unfortunately I have to take off the right hand cam pulley at the very least! It is being ornery as hell. Any tricks to removing the bolt without the cam turning.

There is a you tube two part video of removing the timing belt,idler,tensioner and water pump. Should work for your 05. Here is the urls for the first and second parts.
My 76 year old eyes give me hell when trying to read those very long urls. If they don't work for you here are the basics. The front support bracket in front of the waterpump is removed by taking the front motor mount loose and jacking the engine up high enough to slide the bracket off of those long studs. The studs have to be removed in order to remove the water pump. Takes a 8mm inverted torx or a stud removal socket which slips over the stud past the threads and then can be tightened on the stud to remove it. Hope this helps. Regards.

No you don't have to remove the studs Donald you just slide the pump over those studs. Trying to remove them would likely result in them breaking anyway.

To remove the water pump you will need to have a jack and block of wood for the oil pan.

After loosening the bracket bolts, remove the bracket after lifting the engine up then remove the pump as well.

The upper cover only needs to be remove for camshaft seal replacement (which is also a good idea).
