And, going on my recent experience, maybe the water pump? I got quite a bargain on Ebay, 22, and a good make, according to James.

Good call, might as well get the serpentine belt sorted too.

James changed my Aux belt 4 years ago and it was still fine the other week, so if you don't do a high mileage, just inspect it for cracks, etc.
I am told that you can change it fairly easily without major aggro when it does look tired, but I defer to more informed opinion on that, as it will surely come along soon!

It's got to come off for the cam belt, but a visual inspection ought to do: I've been doing that whenever I've done work on mine for the last eight years. What is essential is that the aux-belt tensioner pulley is greased, as that's the biggest failure with serpentine belts.
