As it won't be too long now before I should be thinking of changing the cam belt I have started saving now.
Does anybody know if it is still advisable to have the water pump changed at the same time on these modern cars?
Mine is the Vel Satis 2.2DCI Auto.
Many Thanks
John

Hi Vel - it is recommended the timing belt be renewed along with it's idlers and tensioners. Also it is advisable to renew the auxillary belt when down in there doing the work. The additional cost of replacing the water pump whilst doing this work is likely to be minimal and would good preventative maintainance.:)
