water pump noise?
i was supposed to have the cambelt changed on my 147 1.6 TS Lusso today but after getting it in the garage the mechanic said it sounded like the water pump was making a noise so that would need doing to so having to leave it til next week.
What does this sound like though? It makes a bit of a rattle on start up but only for a second or 2 and not very often, is this it? also sometimes at a very specific 1700 rpm it makes a kind of vibrating noise which i thought was the exhaust heat shield as it stopped when i got my dad to have a look around underneath and pushed on it which made the noise stop, is the the water pump though?
been quoted 200 for pump & belt and 170 for full service, ouch =(
