Is200 Cam/timing Belt Change Clarification

Hi all, I wonder if I can get some clarification about the Timing Belt change.

My 03 IS200 has not quite done 22K miles, that's right, doesn't get driven much, however as it is well past the recommended 6yrs for belt change, I am looking to do it. I will be doing this myself with a mate, as luckily I have access to a fully equipped garage, and after changing my mates belt on his RS4, the IS change appears to be a walk in the park.

So, I was looking for clarification on what else should be changed... I know the belt kit includes the tensioner, but should the water pump be changed at the same time as well ? Is there anything else over and above this that needs to be considered ?

Cheers

Hi would have cambelt, tensioners and water pump(just to be on the safe side) even if the water pump is not leaking.
