How much should I pay to have the water pump replaced?

Hi all. My 2009 Yaris is making some kind of engine noise. Almost like a soft, clattering clacking noise. Still loud enough to be embarrassing. The noise increases as the engine revs. I took it to the dealership to get their diagnostic, they said they believe it's the water pump. And they said that the pump is leaking. I did not notice a puddle, nor has the low coolant light come on.

Still they're probably right and the pump is making the sound.

How much should I pay a reasonable mechanic to replace the water pump? I'm assuming $900 is exponentially higher than the job is actually worth, in typical dealership fashion.

Would say... $300 be closer to the mark?

It's not a difficult job. Why not replace it yourself. Anyways $900 sounds like a lot. $300-400 is more reasonable.

Yes I have decided to do the job myself. It looks like experienced people do the job in roughly 45 minutes. So 2-4 hours for me. Well worth the savings. Got the Aisin brand pump in today.

Anybody know how to pronounce that? Aisin.
