Och it will be fine just leave it. If you dont feel any adverse effect because of it jusk keep running as you are.

I was advised one year on a wheel bearing never did anything and then it passed the following year no advisories.

Always make the mechanic shiw you the advisory

Sounds like a plan, Only reason i changed it last time as it was making a terrible noise but no such issues with it now. Will keep an eye on the coolant to make sure I am not losing any.

Might be an idea to put some cardboard under the water pump area to keep an eye on it.
That way you can quickly see if your pump is losing any before the light come. Carry some spare, who knows.

It is leaking put some cardboard under the car so new pump and belt ordered (belt is less than a year old) so don't know if I can get away with just changing pump without having to touch the belt as that bit looks confusing to me in the how to.

So water pump and belt fitted, I manged to snap the plastic that holds the bumpers on the side but easily replace.

Parts:

Water Pump £23 Ebay
Belt £9 Ebay
5 Litres of Coolant £15 Ebay
2x Replacement bumper brackets £8 each

Total Cost £63 compared to the garages quote of £223, I have to say I am the worst person in the world when it comes to DIY etc and this was an easy job :-)

Not only have you saved a lot of money, the car is repaired.
You have learned how to do jobs with confidence.
Nice one :-)

Does anyone know what the front plastic part thats in the centre of the bumper called? I hit a pit last night in the dark and its creased so want to replace it. Its the part that the number plate sits on. I have searched ebay but can't find one.

Used one it's a complete grill. Not 2 piece l think the latter models with the chrome band are 2 piece.
How's are all in one in.

Maybe it's listed under grill
Would the damage not pop out??

Well its been a while, Car has been making a funny noise when driving over 50mph, thought the gargage had fitted my new discs and pads but they had a drive in it and reckon the whiring noise is the clutch plate. Had some stupid quotes so far to replace it ( Highest being £439) I know I can pick up the 190mm version on Ebay new for less than £60, unfortunately the privately owned one man garage across from my work in the industrial estate has gone ( He charged me £100 to fit it last time back in 2013) new guy there said it should take between 3-3.7hrs according to his guide online and he charges £35 an hr so I suppose its cheaper. I changed my water pump last year but don't think I could do a clutch as I have no tools.
