Changing o ring from intake to waterpump any tricks?

The o ring blew out at the top of my waterpump housing to the intake what's the easiest way to change it pull the intake manifold or timing cover? And how long should I expect to be working on it any suggestions or tricks? Thanks in advance for the help!

honestly that thing should never blow under normal circumstances. I'd be looking for a reason why it failed (fuel in the coolant will eat this thing, so will dexcool)

easiest way to change it would be to unbolt the intake and pry it up as far as necessary, I'm sure you can sneak that oring in there. I would remove the intake fully though, it can always use a good cleaning and it'll give you a chance to replace the gaskets too.

I had a mechanic do an egr delete and oil cooler a few months ago had the intake gasket replaced then and the o ring should have been changed out to but now I can't get ahold of the guy that done the work to make sure he didn't short cut it. Once I get in there I'll be looking for reasons why it blew but I didn't have fuel in the coolant that I could see when I drained it

yeah I guess it's possible it can leak if you reuse it. never run across that though.
