water pumps on a vanagon are a pain in the ass. the best thing to do is remove 
the compressor, all of the A/C brackets, remove the pulley from the water pump 
and then access the remaining bolts. don't forget that after you replace the 
pump, you have to bleed the air out of radiator. there is a bleeder screw on 
top of the radiator behind the upper grill on the passenger side. jack the 
front end up about 8 inches, start the engine, get it warmed up so the 
thermostat is open and then slowly open the bleeder until all of the air is 
removed. hope this helps. if not, I know that BAP/GEON carries the bentley 
manual/bible for vanagons. The next available time I have is about 3 weeks 
away. ---mark aka "the vanagon guy"
