If the timing belt has never been done, DO IT NOW! Sorry for shouting
:-), it was not done on mine, the repair bill was _very_ high.

There is a distinct chirping sound coming from the front part of the
on my 129K 200q20V Avant. Not load enough to hear from inside the car
the windows up, but very obvious from outside the car with the engine
idling. I've never had this problem before, but I would suspect a water

I have service records for the first 100K miles (100-120 are missing),
no evidence of its ever being replaced. While looking through for the
pump, I also can find no reference to a timing belt change either.

Is there anyway to confirm its the water pump?

I presume if I do the pump I should do the belt at the same time...
