I am getting ready to replace a water pump that has been leaking fluid out of the weep hole. I am wondering. Are there any other components (besides the belt) that would be convient and beneficial to replace at this time? It looks like I will have to pull out several other components (like the altenator) to get to the water pump. Is that the correct way to go about it as well?
The belt is really the only thing to replace. The other components you will simply remove and then replace them. The only other thing I would suggest is to replace the thermostat and flush the cooling system at this time.
