water pump decided to go on me a couple of days ago.... i got myself a new pump, understanding it would be quite easy to :(

question is, do i HAVE to remove the cambelt to do this, i know i have to raise engine by removing left mount, but is it not possible to replace water pump without removing the belt?


ps, it a 1.6 1994 with black top engine

hi m8,
yeah im afraid the cambelt will have to be removed & replaced with a new one when you've fitted the new water pump.
I replaced my water pump last year & i got a lot of help from my haynes manual.
p.s its quite a tricky job for a non mechanic (like me :loopy: )
hope this helps :L

you also need to remove the crankshaft pulley to enable you to get the belt off, and by the way if the belt is quite new and removed carefully and put back on the same way round it will be ok, if the belt is old or looks worn then replace it and the tensioners while your there. Get a Haynes manual and read it carefullly all the way through the procedure BEFORE you attempt it to make sure you have all the tools you need to lock the cams etc.

Sounds like you have done the same as me, changed the cam belt but not the water pump and now its knackered :( So if the belt isnt that old and put on the same it should be ok cos I dont fancy forking out for another belt :headshake:
