    You could do the water pump if you want, but at the mileage you don't have too. Only around another £35 though. If you do do the water pump might as well flush the system too. 5lt of OAT Antifreeze from VX is only £16, which is pretty much comparable with motor factors. You will need about 3.5-4lt topped up with water.

    Can the pump be replaced without removing the timing belt on the z18xer?

    Yes, it can. The water pump runs off the auxiliary belt, so no need to disturb the timing belt unless you wish to change that as well.
