Coolant has begun leaking over the past couple of weeks (not overheating but constantly having to add a few ounces to keep the level above the sensor). Upon a routine oil change it certainly appears to be coming from the water pump. I understand from a previous post from Planefixer80, that the engine needs to be lowered a few inches to get the pump to clear when removing/replacing and he stated this is a ~2 hour job. I'm trying to decide to tackle this myself or not. Has anyone else done this job and can offer insight? Also does anyone have an idea of what the dealer charges to do this? Do they say the entire engine has to be removed to up the service hours?
Thanks

Had mine done under warranty so unfortunately no help on the DIY/dealer cost. Easy to simply call around and use a dealer and a few indy shops to gauge cost.
