It's an internal pump that runs on the timing belt. So you have to pull everything off including the timing belt to replace it.

2000 VW 2.0 Beetle - Manual say not to replace timing belt?


General rule on most cars with a timing belt is change somewhere between 80K and 120K. On some cars, failure of timing belt will destory the engine.

If car is only worth $2500, and labor (parts are cheap on this usually) is $1000, if you can't do it yourself, need to decide if you risk it.

Are you willing to throw away the car when the timing belt breaks? Or spend the $1000, and have some other failure that renders the car useless 5000 miles later?

This is really a financial decision you have to make. If engine blows, you may be able to get $500 for it from junkyard, and you still have your $1000 saved from not changing the timing belt.

When do i need to change the timing belt or chain in my 1999 merc


Usually around 90,000 miles is a good time to change this component. I see you are approaching this mark with 88,000 and counting so, i would prepare for this replacement soon.

TIMING BELT WON'T STAY CENTERED ON CAMSHAFT SPROCKETS


You don't mention replacing any tensioner bearing which if worn could be causing the belt to drift.
I would probably remove any covers and physically watch the belt to try to determine which of the surfaces on which the belt runs is at fault. I think the belt is probably not that cheap so I hope you cure this soon.
