Are you serious?
a new genuine water pump from renault is only about 60 or an equivalent one from a motor factors for less.
Also how can you tell a second hand water pump is going to be any good?The best you can do is spin it and wiggle it and say that the bearing is ok,What you can't say is that in the next few months the seal isn't going to start weeping and letting water into the bearing and if that happens you will be lucky if the water pump lasts another 1000 miles.
