1991 Volkswagen Golf Question: water pump replacement

last year i had my timing belt replaced do i need to have it replacd again or will it be ok to just replace the water pump. -
Answer 1
water pump alone is ok,you should replaced it both last year so you don't have to go back to replace the water pump when its failing now -
