Timing Belt & Water Pump

Recommended Posts

Help and advice needed please.

Just had my final Lexus dealer service on my IS200SE with 102K on the clock.

Lexus advised they could not change the timing belt as the water pump was leaking (?!)

Does this make sense?

I don't want to pay the £800 Lexus are quoting to replace the water pump and timing belt.

Can I get it done cheaper some other way?

How many miles can I go before I really start risking the belt going.

Car does 500 miles/week mostly on motorways..... :unsure:
