So far I've had to add about 1 C to our '15 sitting with 28K on the clock. Knock on wood.

If someone were to DIY this, I imagine TB locking tools would be a minimum? Seeing other TB components aren't touched it'd be a bit easier?

Crank lock and cam/pump pin are compatible from prior years CR motors. The procedure is nearly identical as well. No need to remove the belt completely, so no need to remove the motor mount and support the engine. I ended up having a small coolant leak rather than a leaking pump, though I suspect my pump was replaced in its first 15k miles before I owned the car.

2015 GSW - 53k, losing coolant, dealer diagnosed leaking waterpump. They had to change the timing belt as well. Thankfully this happened before the magic 60k powertrain warranty bye-bye mark.

Did they replace tensioner and rollers? If not, I'd probably replace again at the normal interval. Nice you got a fresh pump on them though.

Could you check your invoice and report the part number of the water pump? I'm curious if they are showing a different p/n than the original that may indicate a non-variable pump replacing the original variable flow pump.

I haven't seen a new OE number for the non-variable pump. And any aftermarket manufacturer's number will be the non-variable, as I don't believe anyone in the aftermarket is making a variable pump for this application.
