My brother's 01 started leaking coolant. It appears to be coming from the water pump. Does anyone know the approximate time it would take to replace it?

Just did it and replaced A/C tensioner. Took about 4.5 hrs. But that includes driving to parts store and waiting on them to Find the pump (drive is 20min each way alone) I'd say if id have had the part on me it would have been a two hour job max. Hardest pet is figuring out how to get the fan off. Horrible design. I ended up being able to wedge an Alan wrench behind the fan pulley into a hole in the water pump spindle and was able to get the nut on/off.
