Question about 1997 Land Rover Defender 90
Just bought my wife a Rover 25 1.4 iL '02 model.
Its done 37000 miles.
The garage have agreed to change the cam belt as part of the deal before we get the car.
I've just been reading on the internet that its good practice that the water pump is also changed at the same time.
How can I convince the garage that this is the case?
Their view so far is:
'You would do so only if there is a problem with the pump. The only vehicles where it is necessary is on certain Vauxhalls where the pump acts as a tensioner. All pullies and tensioners will be changed at the same time as the cambelt'
Are they right in their statement does anyone know?
Got a problem with my rover 25 1.4il clock keeps on playing up.
can any one give some pointers,

If all the other rollers and tensioners have covered 37000miles and they need changing why leave the water pump,it has as much tension on it as the rest of the tensioners......if they wont change it ask them to guarantee it against failure if they are that confident it shouldnt be a problem,or if it does fail will they pay for the replacement cylinder head/engine ?because it will destroy it !!!!!!
