How much to replace both. I am not able to lump both repairs together and I know that much of the labor cost is the same

    Hello,
    The water pump is generally about an extra hour of labor + parts when combined with the timing belt replacement. Make sure the tensioner is replaced as well. It would be parts only, no extra labor.
