Water pump = medium job

 Timing belt = big job

 I reckon I can do an Ur-q water pump in a couple of hours but I've only 
 done a couple as just pumps, I've done loads as part of a complete
 pump/timing belt/idle roller job and that requires removal of the front
 bumper and air dam. Now _that_ can stretch things to well over 5 hours and
 that's on my car where all the bumper and air dam mountings are stainless
