- For 944s it is recommended to replace the water pump at every other belt change (90000 miles). For 968s, it may be possible to extend the life of the pump to the second belt change at 120000 miles. However, you should monitor for indications of a failing water pump closely after 100000 miles.
- For timing belt and balance belt tensioners and rollers, it is recommended to remove the rollers and spinning by hand at each timing belt replacement. If the roller is noisy, it should be replaced. All rollers should be replaced at every other belt change unless it’s an individual roller that was replaced during the previous belt change.
