Recommended Posts

I have no idea what a garage would charge to do this, but for the sake of £125 (which I guess wouldn't be far off a garage labour charge) you could buy this set http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bahco-Socket-106-Piece-2-Inch-Drive/dp/B000Y8OFI6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1449759465&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=Bahco+Socket+set&psc=1

I have a good tool box with lots of tools so no problem on tool side of things.. As for the link on the bahco tool set its a great price and great tools I have used that brand of tools for many years . I may just but them as a back up set..Thanks :D

Also where did you get your bosch water pump from as ebay have a lot of no branded water pumps etc.. 1991 Mk2f gt coupe ..

Brilliant step by step photos and write up, I followed it myself today, only problem I'm having is get the tension on the belt, the water pump that came of was completely knackered and had done broken off
