Timing Belt/Water Pump Gasket?
« on: May 07, 2015, 09:41:16 AM »
I got my 4th year service done last night, so brake fluid, engine oil, oil filter and cabin filter all done.

But the Timing Belt and Water Pump was left until I find out whether I should have a Gasket for the water pump to seal it or is sealing paste used?

Does anyone know this question, water pump was ordered online and didn't come with any gasket so a little confused by this! Not urgent as ideally could leave both until my 5th year service but would rather get this done next week for peace of mind  ::)

On inspection Brian, you should see the old water pump is sealed with just black silicone sealer. Thats all your need....on the face of the waterpump your see what looks like a little line about 2 mm thick all the way round....just follow that all the way round with about just short of a cm of sealer and your be perfect :)

My car was at 28'800 miles when I picked it up If I remember correctly. Only done around 6k miles so far, will be a year of having it come July so might be around 7k come then, If I had got the car earlier it would have done a lot less mileage ;)
