Default Can I change the water pump without removing the timing belt?

I have a 95 Sidekick 1.6L 8V 4x4 2 door 120k, new timing belt 3,000 miles ago. I bought the SK 2,000 miles after the work was done, documentation and receipts since 1998. However when the timing belt was replaced they foolishly forgot to replace the water pump! Now it is time for the pump to be done. My question is, as I have never done a belt on this motor before. Can you work around the belt in order to r&r the water pump? The motor runs great and I really do not want to mess with it anymore than I have too. Thanks for your help guys this is a great site! Kris.

sure you can

on 8v is free running too,so no pretsaging worries.

the belt will of course be completely loose and flopping and care must be done to
see you put it back correctly.
the problem is , skipping the tensioning steps for 8v

that be real bad.

timing belt swap
