the labor time is 1.8 hours, so figure double that time if you are a novice. i would discourage you from replacing this water pump, it is not needed and is not a high failure part. if you have regular service by a good local shop (never Goober Lube!) they can spot any sign that would indicate a problem well in advance.

I had over 140,000 on my Rav4 before I had to replace the water pump. You will see a pink spray on the inside hood, there is some special pink fluid in the water pump I was told. Bought the pump and also replaced the serpentine belt at the same time. Parts and labor total about $300.00
