Default Water Pump Failure

I am posting for a friend deciding whether to self repair a failed water pump on his daughter's mid 90's legacy 2.2 or have it done professionally. He is weighing the probable cost of professional repair (any estimates/ guesses?) v. the difficulty of doing the job himself having no experience with Subarus. He has had much past experience repairing and rebuilding Ford and Alfa fours but was unsure how long or intensive the repair might be on the flat four layout were he to get a manual a go for it himself. Any thoughts?

You gotta take off the timing belt to get at the pump. Once the belt is off, replacing the pump is cake.

Here's instructions for replacing the belt

Also, here are pictures of the motor, which should give him some visuals of what he's going to need to do.

If he has had some mechanicing experience and has tools, he should be able to handle it. You're probably looking at, at least 400 bucks to replace the pump.

Also, depending on the miles, and if the t-belt has recently been replaced, it's probably be a good idea to replace the belt, and the front cam & crank, and rear pass cam o-ring seal.

Here's pics of my timing belt job. I also replaced the o-ring behind the oil pump.

If he's got any questions, just holler.

I did it on my 98 DOHC 2.5L, not really any problems, it is just a little more work than doing the timing belt.

IIRC, I bought a new Bosch water pump for ~60 and did all the belts/hoses as well while at it.

I just used ramps, made it easy to get to the top and bottom of the engine. I think it was ~2.5 hours total while having some beers as well.

Yeah,
pretty striaghtforward work. With his experience, your buddy should have no problems. If Charlie did it in 2.5 hours, he could do it in 2...
