Fiest 1.4 Zetec Water Pump

11 October 2008 - 02:23 PM

My daughter's car, a 2005 1.4 Fiesta Zetec has been diagnosed with a leaking water pump, initially the garage quoted 207 to supply and fit the replacement (2 hours + parts), now they say it will be 425 as when they went to replace the pump, there are a couple of bolts that cannot be reached unless they remove the timing cover which means they might as well replace the timing belt too(>4 hours). Called a couple of garages and they all say its a 1.9~2 hour job and neither of them said they would have to change the timing belt. Am I getting good sound advice or am I being mislead?
