Yes, water pump and timing cover must come off,....it is easier also to pull out the radiator as well your system is emptty of coolant and gives you much more room to work and not damage radiator...it can be done with it in though then place cardboard on radiator so you don’t accidentally bump it and put a hole in it.

but really easier to take it out.....and then refresh your whole cooling system andsee if you need a new timing cover. Once it is off easier to replace now then have to do the job over
