Has anyone had their Water Pump replaced?

I had my 2008 HB in for maintenance last week and was surprised that the dealership told me that the water pump is leaking and should be replaced. I have the extended warranty til 200,000km, so it didn't cost me any $$. My mileage is only 95,000kms.

I was wondering if anyone else has had to replace the waterpump? I am thankful that I bought the extended warranty!! I have had to replace the ABS sensor and water pump & the extended warranty only cost me $1200.00. These repairs would have put a deep dent into my wallet.

I changed mine 3 week ago at 41000 KM. A friend who have a 2007 (+- 40 000 KM) had the same problem. He work at the dealership where I bought my car and he ask me if my waterpump was leaking. Thanks to him!

Maybe not, but I think the reason to buying the extended warranty is more for the "what if I do have problems?" It only takes a few things before the warranty is worth it. In additions you have peace of mind that if something DOES then you don't need to pocket the expense.

PS: That's a lot of driving to rack up 120,000km on an 09!

not to start an argument over warranties, but I've found that putting a little bit away every month and budget for a repair before it happens saves over buying an extended warranty if you plan on keeping the car for an extended period of time.

glad you got your pump replaced at no cost to you though!

I'm at 192,000 and no water pump issues ... most likely something at the factory when they installed it I would think?

Not to continue an argument over warranties, considering you could buy the pump yourself for <$100, and pay a family run garage <$100 to do it...instead of having the dealership charge the warranty $700 to do it...

No, they just go out sometimes. In fact, when I had a Honda they recommend replacing the water pump the same time you replace your timing belt.

My last car (a GM model) had the water pump go out when it had just 8000 miles on it.

water pump bearings and leaking

I have 126,000 miles on my Yaris Basic (USA), and the bearing could be heard for the last 6 or so thousand miles. I mistakenly thought it was the altinator bearing. I got the serpentine belt off and spun the altinator...smooth as glass good bearings. Everything seemed fine as I scratched my head wondering. I started the engine up without the serpentine belt in place...no noise. This told me it had to be the something that the serpentine belt spun up...the altinator, water pump, or air conditioner pump. I turned everything...all the bearings seemed fine. I then brushed my hand under the water pump, their was partially dried gunk their. A closer look revealed antifreeze leaking so slowly from the bottom of the water pump that it dried their to form a crust. The hole in the bottom of the water pump lets it leak out their if the seals fail. I replaced the water pump, that was my problem. I believe the seals failed letting antifreeze leak into the water pump bearings, thus the bearings started to fail. The failing bearing sang their warning song for 2 months before I troubleshot the problem. I am thankful for that. But a little disappointed in the quiality of the water pump. Hopefully the next one lasts longer.

My 09 Yaris has been serviced last month and got a new water pump, too. 12.000km driven so far. Mechanic told me the pump had a minor leak. Ive got a new one and did not have to pay anything for it.

just FYI: warranties pay LESS than retail in both parts and labor for repairs. As a toyota parts guy, I routinely get screwed by warranty pricing lol.

in response to the OP. we rarely see this on the Yaris in comparison to other models. We stock ONE yaris W.P. We stock 4-5 of all other major models as W.P's are very common with the newer toyota's. There is some internal speculation that the increased W.P. rate is due to the pink coolant formulation. we didn't have near the problem with red coolant

Well, with 126,000 miles on a water pump, I wouldn't call that low quality. That's longer than the industry average.

I had my water pump replaced while it was still under warranty a couple years ago.

Hello everyone, most of you said it was leaking. Is it noticeable on the ground? What are the symptoms of a bad water pump?

I only had some waterdrops at the bottom of the pump housing.

on many toyota's, there is no noticeable drip from the W.P. Often, we only see pink residue around it rather than an active leak.
