I think my 04 CS car is due for a new Water Pump. It is getting noisey but has not started leaking yet. 50k miles.

Loren- It been a long time :)

Anyone happen to have a DIY for the Water Pump replacement? It should not be too hard.

Any info/ Part #'s would be great.

Thanks,

Chad

It isn't too bad, as long as your hand can se somewhat of a contorsioist - it is pretty tight up front.

The trick is:

Remove the front ducting - the srews turn about half way then the center duct will slide out - these are NOT a bolt- it is a special turn lock!

If you are unsure about repositioning the belt correctly, then seek a mechanic - this would be a disasterous whoops!

If you place a large bin under the car, you can catch most of the coolant, you can even use a paint filter to filter this and re-use.

Availabliltiy - through the dealer of course, but for way less, if you deal with a shop that uses worldpac for a parts supplier, the part is now

available through them - it is an oem part - comes in a porsche box with porsche part numbers.

hope this helps.

Mine started grumbling at 90,000 km - you are better to replace now, rather than wait for the sploosh of coolant.

Just make sure it is the water pump. I had a clanking noise - consistent, but getting louder as the I drive the car over about a 2 week period. I took it into the dealer and they diagnosed it as a converter problem. I happened to have another pair of stock ones at home and swaped them. Sure enough it was a convertor. I cut the bad one apart and the "honeycone" inside was free and moving around..
