Hi Guys, oops and Girls.
Just been informed my water pump is Knackered.
Wondered how easy it is to replace, as there ain't much room at the side!!!
Can pick up a new pump for about £30 and would love to replace tonight.

mine had odd loking bolts but an ordinary socket fits didn't even have to undo the belt tensioner.

Thanks for the info.
Have heard that you should change timing chain at same time, is that necessary?

Bryan,
Just to let you know, it was pretty easy.
Not done one on a laguna before, so wasn't sure.
Thanks for you help.
Regards pepbri.

Soz ottoman.
Forgive me as i'm a newbie!!!!!!!!
Will take pics on any jobs undertaken in future though, as it's a great way to pass on knowledge of doing jobs.
I,ve just renewed all the front discs and pads, i know its another easy job but i suppose that could have been good to show in pics.
