Nissan Pathfinder water pumps require replacement if they begin to leak coolant or become noisy. Leaking water pumps can result in damage to the drive and timing belts.
When doing a timing belt job changing the water pump is imperative to keep your engine runnig safely and cool. Water pumps should be replaced at 100,000kms, and at every 50,000kms thereafter. This Genuine Nissan water pump is a direct fit for the BNR32, as it does not have the elongated bolt hole as found on the BCNR33 and BNR34 water pumps. The pump comes with 4 new studs as well.
