Water pump change interval for 2.0 TS

I just had my cambelt and aux belt kit changed recently on my 147 2.0 TS. The mechanic suggested that for the next change (before 100,000km) I should change my variator and water pump.

Is there a standard replacement interval for the water pump? I've heard that on diesel engines the standard item is made of plastic and can shatter, taking out the aux belt and probably the timing belt with it. Is this also an issue for Twin Spark engines? Any cases of Twin Sparks being killed by a broken water pump?

Re: Water pump change interval for 2.0 TS

There is no standard interval for variator of water pump change. But as their replacement requires a cambelt job, it is economically reasonable not to wait till they fail, but to replace them when doing the cambelt. I think at 100 000 km it is a good idea to change both when you do the cambelt, just for the peace of mind.

Variators can fail unexpectedly at any time or mileage, waterpumps occasionally, but it may happen.
