MEYLE workshop advice No. 1: To avoid repeated repairs, the MEYLE engineers recommend that the water pump be replaced along with the timing belt. The reason: both system components have the same mileage and amount of wear. Therefore, if only one component is replaced, the second is likely to require replacement shortly after.
MEYLE workshop advice No. 2: When replacing the water pump, the entire cooling system needs to be flushed thoroughly prior to refilling the system with new coolant. Adhere to the manufacturer’s specifications at all times. This video tutorial provides further information on how to flush the cooling system: https://youtu.be/i0Hy3eTq5eY.
