WATER PUMP REPLACMENT ONLY?

2002 Mitsubishi Galant • 125,000 miles

Can a water pump be replaced without having to change the timing belt, due to water pump failure? Timing belt was changed 15000 miles ago and is not due to be changed any time soon.

As long as the timing belt condition looks good without any damages, yes, you can definitely reuse it but you need to mark the direction of the belt before removing in order that you follow the same direction of rotation of the belt while reinstalling.
