Cayenne S Water pump replacement

This forum is a little light of DIYs so I thought I'd document the water pump R&R my buddy and I did today on my '05 Cayenne S.

Brace doesn't need to come off if you don't have the drain plug in the bottom of the radiator. Unfortunately I don't know if you can see the drain plug with the brace on. I would suggest you only loosen/remove the brace on the pass side and loosen the driver's side just enough to let the pass side fall and look for the plug. No plug button it back up and remove the lower radiator hose.
