    Water Pump on a 97 A3?????

    Does anyone know how easy it is to change your own water pump on a 97 A3?

    think it might be going, so was thinking of changing it?

    Basically the same as replacing the cambelt, since it's got to come off to allow you to change the
    water pump. Check out harry the cake HTC excellent write up at

    Since you've got to go all that way, might aswell replace belt and tensioner+pulley at same time. Job is not easy though...for the semi experienced with the right tools i would think 4-6 hours...there's is little space to work in! At the stealers - quotes range between 330 (v. cheap) to 500ish. If DIY , you're looking at parts prices with VAT coming to 120ish

    Cambelt 12-20
    Tensioner 35
    Tensioner pulley 19
    Water Pump 26
    Coolant 5

    Hope this helps...keep us informed if you have it done for you as to how much it costs

    to change teh water pump you do not need to remove the whole belt but it is easier with the car on a ramp!!!!!!
