    water pump isnt near the primary chain and sits in a houseing on the back of the engine it is also run from the balance shaft chain it wouldnt be checked in any way when the oil pump was removed due to the fact you cannont test it in any way ....unless it is leaking or noisey no way of testing ,,, did they fit the new z2.0net tenstioner ?...also the job of replaceing the water pump will not be the same as doing the primary chain it is a different job ..how much they quoted?

    just noticed you have had a balance chain fitted too ...are you shure they fitted a balance chain kit ?......they would have had a good idea if it was faulty with the balance chain removed ....
