I have a Captur iconic nav DCI, 1461cc 66 plate , 60000 miles. The cambelt replacement is due this year and I have been told by my local Renault main dealer that the water pump should be replaced as well. Is this correct even if the pump is in good working order or is it good practice for the long term.

Yes , it's very important this is done at the same time, the belt drives the pump , if any problems occur with the pump the belt would be under strain,and it could cost you an engine

Yes it is worth getting the water pump changed at the same time. My dCi is also (over)due a cambelt change. local specialist is quoting well over £500 though, but this includes the water pump as well

I paid £520 from Renault main dealer for cambelt and water pump replacement for my DCI 1.5 2015. That included a free courtesy car and full vehicle check. Think it's worth paying a little extra. I live in Kent and used Masters Renault in Coulsdon. Customer service was amazing. I did get a much higher quote from my local Masters Renault dealer which I thought was odd but they said the dealers are franchised. :unsure: They also gave me a video of the work stages, cambelt off and shown to the camera, engine side stripped, water pump off and new one on. Still expensive but a long way off the £790 mentioned. They also did a 3 month interest free payment scheme called Payment Assist which makes it much more palatable.
