Special Tools??? Water Pump Replacement

I am about to tear down the beast and replace the squealing water pump... Just wondering if there are any tip or special tools required to replace? Any in-site or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Nothing special required. Make sure the new pump has a gasket.

I'm BAAAAAAAACK....

2015 Billet Silver
past:
2012 300SRT
2009 Jeep SRT
2006 Charger SRT
Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Yes, I'm on the 3 year plan...so 2018 better be a hellcat Jeep.

its not too hard if you take off the fan assembly and depending on the miles you have check out the alternator i had my alternator go bad the day after i did my water pump and had to get back in there and i changed out my thermostat and thermostat gasket and put on a new belt i also trimmed filed/sanded the fan shroud so i can see if i have any leaks and get to them without having to take out the fan assembly
