It would be smart to do the water pump while you are in there, but are you sure that stuff has to be done? A 2000 model seems a little new to have to do that stuff to. All there is to check while your in there is the timing gear teeth. You could check your cam lobs by pulling the cam out but that would be pretty extensive work and usually isn't necessary. Another serpentine belt would be wise since you'll already have it off. When you put it back together, make sure you let the sealant dry pretty well before driving it or you'll end up redoing all of it.

How to fix a 2002 mitsubishi galant water leak


Depends upon the source of the water leak. Common places to leak are at hose connections, the radiator core, the heater core, or the water pump. Once you have identified the source of the leak, repair or replace parts as needed. If you have a 6-clyinder model, the water pump is located behind the timing cover, driven by the timing belt. Many owners believe that the repair shop is trying to rip them off when thy recommend water pump replacement at timing belt replacement time and opt not to do it since the pump is working. Unfortunately, the new timing belt will cause a different wear pattern on the pump shaft and almost unfailingly, the pump will leak within a few weeks or months after the timing belt is done. Many shop now refuse to replace the timing belt without water pump replacement for this reason, or will make the owner sign a waiver of responsibility if they refuse the additional service/cost.

REPLACING THE TIMING BELT ON A 98 VW


you definitely need to replace the belt and water pump and sometimes the tensioner. i would recommend a high mileage belt and a water pump with a metal impeller.
failure to replace the belt immediately can cause severe engine damage.
believe it or not there is a youtube video that shows how to do the belt on a new beetle.

I have a 1998 volkwagon beetle 2.0 that needs a water pump so i buy the water pump install it put everything back together and put water inside then it just spilled out. tried to start it and now the


you should did your home work before removed old water pump most vw engines water pump is part of the timing belt assembly so when time to replace around 80k miles you should order complete timing belt kit which includes water pump with it.
so after you finish up if you didnt try to hard to run engine you may or may not damage any piece from your valve train!!even with all proper parts you have on your hand you still need high cost speciality tools to complete timing belt replacement on that engine recommendetion is tow your vehicle to mechanic shop and let them do it for you it will save you time and money!
good luck!

The timing belt is routed around the water pump and if it is slipping off the pulley, your water pump is not correctly cooling your car. Have the timing belt and water pump replaced.

    I had the same problem on my 2000 beetle and I had to change the water pump . Once you change the water pump you have to change the timing belt because the water pump is run by the timing belt .
    you could know if it is the water pump by checking the hose that comes from the radiator to the enging to se if there is water running to the engine .

    Replacing the serpentine belt on a New beetle is not easy as it was on the old one.

    First you need to remove the Water tank, and undo the hoses near to the water tank.
    Then you remove the three bolts securing the tensioner with a 13mm socket wrench, and release the tensioner.
    Then you replace the belt.

    The procedure is explained here on pages 2 to 5
    , do not go over page 5, the rest of the procedure is on replacing the timing belt, and you risk to damage your car by touching the timing belt.

    Once you replace serpentine belt, ensure that the pumps is running, that the belt is well in tension, and that is solidly there, not slipping out.

    All the repairs must be done or supervised personally by a qulified mechanic.

    Regards.
