Coolant pump and timing belt
I have a slight anti-freeze leak on my Clio II 1.4 16V which I think is coming from a perished seal in the coolant pump. If this proves to be the correct diagnosis can I replace the effected part in the pump or is it necessary to buy a new pump?
Also, my timing belt is due to be replaced in ~5k miles and I have been told that I may as well wait for the belt change before doing the pump. As long as the leak gets no worse is this safe to do? (I do quite high mileage so I will do 5k before winter sets in).
Lastly, does anyone have any guide prices for a timing belt and coolant pump (+labour)?
Many thanks in advance.
