You have to take the other cover off and release the tension on the chain tensioner. Then you will have enough room for the water pump to come off.

You need to loosen the chain tesioner bolts so the oil that's trapped inside can bleed out while pushing the tensioner piston in. I had the same problem and this is not mention in the manual.

Got it. For a moment I thought that you didn't realize the date on this thread, as you were searching for answers to the problem you're having with the water pump you replaced.
