Hello,

Was driving and noticed a drop in power, then the battery light came on, and pulled over. Popped the bonnet and the water pump casing was totally bust, and the belt was obviously loose etc.

The engine still runs, and I've got the car booked into the garage on Monday. How long, and how much hassle is it to change the water pump myself? It doesn't look too bad in terms of access.

Cheers,
Darren
