1994 4 runner water pump replacement

Is this a big job? I am mechanically inclined but do not want to take all day doing this. I replaced the radiator as it was leaking and replaced the thermostat. Now I see a slow stream of water coming from the pump. I have read that you have to remove the timing belt as well. Any tips would greatly be appreciated. 3.0 v6 engine. Thanks

do you have to remove the timing belt assembly or can you just remove and replace the water pump? Thanks for the sticky as this really helps.

Yes, you have to remove the timing belt.
