VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT WATER PUMP PROBLEM

2007 Volkswagen Passat • 4 cylinder FWD Manual •

Had new cambelt fitted 3 weeks ago, the engine is now overheating, its okay on idle bot over 2000 rpm the needle shoots up. Have tried running up to temp from cold with the reservoir cap off to get rid of possible air lock but still overheating. I am guessing it will be the water pump, dose the front end have to be removed to change the water pump as most of the cost in the cam belt change is labour.
Many thanks
