156 Cambelt / water pump change query!

Excuse my ignorance chaps but its been suggested that when I have the cam belt changed at 114,000 miles, that I should get the water pump renewed at the same time................whats the reason for this???????

Re: 156 Cambelt / water pump change query!

On my v6 the original impeller blades are made from plastic which crack,this causes the water pump to run inefficiently and causes the engine to overheat.Fitting a metal impeller ensures that this problem doesn't happen again.
