    Default Timing Belt Due - Water Pump Too?

    Im looking at getting my timing belt done and have been quoted £200 all in so far, however I need to check if thats just belt or the full kit including tensioners and pulleys. He did say it was genuine Vauxhall stuff though but I want to clarify if its just the belt or not.

    Anyway, is it worth getting the water pump done at the same time? Is there a way to tell if I should or not, like any tell tale signs that it needs replacing? Car is on 89k miles.

    Cheers

    Might as well get both done as you don't want the water pump seizing

    I got mine done last month for £270

    Belts dont fail...........................Tensioners and water pumps do which is what shreds the belts.

    ALWAYS do the water pump and tensioners at the same time as the cambelt.
