    Just had a newcam belt fitted and apparently the cambelt on this engine does not drive the water pump so this does not need replacing during cambelt change I wonder how many people pay for a new water pump when not needed.
    Depends how good the garage is I suppose.

    I thought it did as I had it changed when I had the belt changed last year.

    You may have had it changed but I think the point is did it need changed ?
    My 2004 had the cam belt changed but the garage told me the water pump belt didn't need changing. I have used them for the past 20 years and they've always done right by me .
    Last year when I needed new Camping tyres for the van they matched my cheapest internet quote and didn't charge me for disposal of my old tyres.

    2.8 engine has a separate water pump belt, the 2.3 engine's water pump is driven by the cambelt

    The garage has just replaced my water pump again as it was damaged when the studs holding the cam belt tensioner snapped also fitted a complete new head saw it today.
