    Default Water pump.

    Due my service/MOT in the next few months, so planning ahead to save some cash.

    Now i have an 07plate 1.8vvt petrol Exclusiv.
    44k Miles

    Question is, does the water pump have to be changed also? or is this not driven by my the timing belt?

    Cheers guys.

    Cam belt change on the VVTi is 100,000 miles. Also waterpump is not driven off the cam belt, so save your pennies!!

    Cheers fellas! Much appreciated.

    Worth doing the belt then?
    Will be selling the car in a few years and only do ~15kmiles per year.

    Does the age not effect the interval for the belt change though as im no whare close to 100k miles but 5 years old?

    Thanks

    Cambelt every 5-6 years is good practice
