    Hi all
    has anyone changed a water pump on a Fiat ducato based Hymer C class looks very awkward so any advice would be appreciated also any pictures would be helpful.
    I have the Peter russek manual but it really dosen't show you or tell you anything about the removal of the pump with engine in situ
    Thanks tricky

    Not tricky more awkward BUT you must be competent as you are into cam belt area
    On some Fiats you have to remove cam belt to do the pump
    DO Not re use the old one
    You don't say what year or engine size so help is limited to the above

    Two variants of engine in your model
    Neither of which has the Water Pump driven by the cambelt
    it would be easier if you were changing the cambelt at the same time but you can try working around it
    Basic mechanical skills reqd rated at 5 out of 10

    Thanks for getting back to me Geo. I have the skills but never had a Fiat Ducato befor and wth the lack of workshop manuals it makes life very hard Thanks once again.
