    Default help -water pump on 2002 2.2 sri

    I bought a 2002 vectra 2.2 sri recently, after doing approx 1 thousand miles the coolant warning icon flashed up, i checked the coolant and it seemed to be slightly down so I topped up the header tank (about a pint).
    Took it to my local garage (who serviced it after I bought it) for a pressure test, when i hadn't heard back from them I popped in to see what was going on and they were half way through replacing the water pump (£165).
    I called the garage where i bought it (still under warranty for a couple of days) and explained what was happening (he wasn't massively impressed (bearing in ming he also has a workshop that could do the work).

    does £165 sound reasonable and should I expect the original dealer to fit the bill?

    Water pump I got a FAI one for £50.
    So, 115 for labour. Does it take 3-4 hours to do??
    It's a pain as it's under the engine, doing mine tonight.
    I thought they were not allowed to do work without permission?
    Seems a little high but still prob better than VX

    I'd say I didn't authorise it and put it back, no way is the dealer gonna give you the money for it when he could have got the pump and done it at no "cost" to them...
