Q: Water pump belt

asked by on

My RAV4 has a broken water pump belt. How much is the water pump belt and how much labor to replace it, do i need to replace anything else at the same time?

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. It is suggested to flush the cooling system and replace the thermostat to have a fully operational cooling system when you have the water pump replaced.
