Re: Timing Belt service and what to replace?

I'd agree with the posters above about the water pump, for the same reasons. As for the alternator, I've had one or two fail over the years and there's usually a clue beforehand that they're going to fail. So, unless the parts are arranged in such a way that an alternator belt or bearing failure could cause a risk of the cambelt failing, then I'd leave the alternator for now.
