Hello folks, and happy new year to everybody.
As I am currently overhauling my alternator, I had a close look at the water pump too. It's not leaking nor making any noise but I can feel a slight end play when grabbing the pulley. Do you think I should search a replacement or leave it as it is.
Nice to all .

Old saying, "It ain't broke, don't fix it" might apply?

Thanks for your input.
Yes, I'll leave it as it is. That was my option too, but I like to be on the safe side.
I've never been stranded on the side of the road with any of my cars and I like it this way!
Nice day to all.
Christophe.

Usually you will hear the water pump long before it starts to fail!
