    I have never heard the engine needs to come out. I know it's a pain to do but I don't thing even the dealer charges much over $600-$650. Any one else feel free to correct me if I'm wrong !

    I was able to get the new water pump with labor for just under $1400 at a local dealership.I was told they had an exceptional mechanic able to do the job in less time and bypass some of the steps listed in the repair data base.Still a lot of money for a water pump.I hope other Sienna owners can find a better/cheaper way to go,Good luck.

    hello , I'm a Master Certified Technician and I recently replaced a water pump on a 2007 Sienna , it took me about 2.5 hours . The Labor guide calls for 17.3 hours and R&R engine ,but I did not need to remove it.

    Today January 3, 2011 Local Toyota Indiana dealer recommended I have the timing belt replaced as my 2007 Sienna has 92,000 miles , and to do the water pump at the same time because it would be cost effective at TOTAL estimated price of $800. Conrad
