If your doing the water pump would strongly advise doing the p gasket aswell, as they are prone to weeping and going unoticed.

and if the p gasket weeps and the coolant drops below the level of the water pump you stand a good chance of overheating and killing the head / engine :oops:

You can buy the tensioner unit BUT you can actaully order the bearing a bit cheaper if need be from eBay or any bearing supplier....i remember someone saying it was a couple of quid for the bearing delivered.


Remember to lock the fuel pump with a pin of some description when doing the timing belt!
