Hi Guy's

A Nice man from the AA gave me a lift home on sat after my water pump decided it was bored of pumping water, thus it has retired.... :idea:

Soooo I have spied a replacement on ebay :D
Item number: 110435535653 £29.95 +£8.99

My question is , how difficult is it to replace? looks fairly simple, i.e. 4 bolts and a couple of pipes... I had a look for a wiki but there isn't one for my car.. Has anyone done one of these before?

thanks

Rob

just be careful of which make of pump you get, i brought 1 that looked right until i put the water and power steering pump together and was left with a 5 mm gap ,it turned out that the output shaft on the water pump was too long , so i had to buy another pump! there are a couple of ford dealers on ebay, its worth trying them first, i think one is called transit parts, i have had a water pump and both belt tensioners from them and are very helpful.

Many thanks guy's

The good news is I replaced it this weekend all ok.... and i took the opportunity to replace the belt and thermostat at the same time. :content:

*** Tip, remove the thermostat housing to gain better access to the bolts on the EGR pipe.
If i have time i will take some pics and do a wiki for this.

The bad news is the problem was that the teeth on the spline/shaft had warn away!! eeekk which now worries me that it could happen again and next time it will be a power steering pump and water pump... :eek13:

The car has done 127,000 miles so its not bad.. i suppose..

I suspect my water pump is leaking, but cant get a good enough view to be 100% certain.
Not losing coolant when the engine is off, but losing a bit on journeys, enough to see small amounts over underside of car in small drips.
When looking from under the car, I can see the pump and it looks dry above it.
Its in for MOT on Monday so have asked them to see if they can determine the leak. I'm hoping it can be a quick fix.....any tips!!!???

The air con will cause water drops. If it is coolant then you should be seeing a drop in the resevoir. Problem is that when its warm the water evaporates too quickly. If it is the pump more than likely the bearings. Might be worth dropping the drive belt off and having a feel of the pump ont he pully for roughness.
Tiny leaks can be a pain to find

The level in reservoir os dropping slightly on each journey and definately coolant dripping under car.
I dont mind attempting this kind of job myself, but just wary of finding other issues as I start taking things apart!
The water pump looks like its 2 halves bolted together? Could it be leaking from seal on this join?

Also got some turbo lag (coked up) but as I do 90% motorway driving its not really a problem.......would love to get a newer car, but have you tried getting credit these days????

Hi All,

After replacing my water pump a few weeks ago I have add'd a wiki on how to do this, or at least how i did it, hope its useful to others.

Pro's feel free to amend or correct / improve it as this is the first wiki i have ever made :kaffeetrinker_2:
