Exclamation Timing belt help!

Hello! My water pump has gone on my 1990 bmw 325i (m20), while replacing the pump I found out my timing belt is shot!
I am just wondering wether I should keep the pump out, to put the timing belt in? will it make it easier?
If anyone has any step by step instructions to replace a timing belt or even just tips that would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers!

Eric
