    Hi there, i used to have a link to this guide saved in my favourites that i got from the forum, however i have recently formatted my hard drive and lost them all!

    It was on a SEAT website as far as i'm aware, i saved it just in case and i am now thinking of carrying out the procedure! Could anyone provide me with the link? (If it still exsists) Thanks People,

    Here's one I wrote. Bit old, but still relevant.

    Water pump is just three bolts once you have the belt off. Can be a little tight when removing, but no real hassle. Usually the plastic impellor breaks on removal, but I'm assuming you will be fitting a new metal type?

    Yeah that's the idea, i've been paranoid since i've had the car because it had a cambelt change at 85k (now on 110k) and the water pump was not replaced. Thanks for your help HTC,

    I just read on one of the links about 4 stretch bolts requiring replacement, does this apply to the AGUs? cheers

    Furthermore - can anyone suggest how this would differ on a standard non-turbo 1.8 SE?

    All the same / less ancillary removal necessary / totally different ?

    cheers.

    It should be almost identical, the belt's in the same location and im sure the kit is the same for all models iirc
