can you replace the timing belt without removing the water pump?

Asked by Sep 30, 2013 at 03:06 PM about the 2004 Toyota Sequoia SR5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had the timing belt and the water pump replaced but the coolant reservoir was low as
when I had the repairs done.  Did they forget to replace the water pump or is this a normal
situation?

You can replace the timing belt and not do the water pump, that is not a normal thing to do if your water pump is driven by the timing belt. If your water pump is driven by the serpentine belt or its own belt then it is not necessary to replace it at the same time as your timing belt. Clear as mud right?
