    Cambelt change, do I change the water pump

    So in the next few months (when the better weather arrives) I 'm going to do the cambelt on the 1.8T, the question is should I also replace the water pump? I know it's a straight yes on the newer A4's, but on my 1.8 with the ADR engine I have only ever changed the pump once and that was at 200K.

    its external on the B5, so even if it were to fail, your not risking engine damage.

    The point is though, while its all apart its easy to get to, and its a 30 component.

    Fair enough, I'll replace it during the change.
