SOURCE: timing belt broke
look at the motor, the side with all the belts, all that stuff has to come off and more not to mention the cam gears have to be set just right. it's a headace for an experinced person.

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

North American specs are 160,000km as outlined in Warranty and services guide.
I believe cost here at a dealer is approx $400 US, The car is capable of running well in excess of 300,000km.
My 2001 has 268,000km and counting, this is my 4th Toyota product over 250,000 km.
