I was directed to your website from GM parts. I own a 2004 Suzuki Forenza and had the water pump replaced less than a year ago at the dealership, the warranty expired due to going over the mileage by 1,000 miles. After bringing the car to my mechanic he advised that the water pump would need to be replaced. I informed him that the dealership had replaced this and he stated that it appears it was never even repaired when I had brought it to the dealership as the water pump looks like the original that was on the vehicle when it was purchased. After going back to the dealership and having them try to rectify the issue, I felt I would rather have the repair completed by my mechanic (at least for piece of mind that it would be repaired properly). My mechanic was able to save the water pump for me which Suzuki claims to have replaced last year. However, I would like to know if there is a way, using the serial code numbers on the water pump to find out when it was purchased and/or installed into the vehicle.
On the spinning part of the water pump there are two numbers, 242012 and 13105603. On the interior part of the pump (reading from left to right) the first segment says "3", the second says "GM", the third has another serial number "24 409 355", and the fourth says "17-471-8."
You assistance in helping me to locate more information would be greatly appreciated.
