    My m/h is coming up for its10th birthday in a month or so, so its cam belt time again
    Its done just over 20k miles,
    It is correct it needs the belt, the tensioner and idler pullies all changed?
    What about the water pump? Is this driven of off the cam belt or auxillary belt?
    Does it need changing or mearly looking at to see if theres been any leaks?
    Ifthe water pump does need changing how much more would I expect to pay?

    Personally I always change the water pump when we do the cambelt little extra cost for peice of mind.
    Cant remember cost but couldn't have been much or I would remember.

    Yes not worth the risk, do the lot and If the pump is driven off of the cambelt then do that too, its probly only 30-40 quid anyway(y)

    The water pump is not driven by the cambelt on the 2.8 so unless it is leaking or there is play in the bearings it doesn't have to be replaced. There is an argument for doing it as the belt does need to be removed to do the water pump.
