They often come of hard with just a wrench. The best way is to have the serpbelt installed on the engine to help hold the water pump pulley from turning. I sometimes use a air hammer with a chisel bit to pound on the nut in the direction to loosen it up. They also make a nice tool that goes in a air hammer with a open end wrench on the other end for easy removal.

Use what there telling you...but if GM corss threaded it on like they did to my clutch fan....Then your gonna need a BFH and a strap wrench. Wedge strap wrench to water pump and dial the basterd off...

And hti the wrnehc towards the passenger side
