i have a noise like bearings on the way out, only when hot. i pulled the belt off and the water pump makes a noise when i turn it but doesn't feel bad, when running there is a grumble i can feel on the tension pulley. i just wanted to know if there is supposed to be any noise at all when turning the water pump by hand or is it supposed to be silent.

If it's making a noise, replace it. Places like Repco and Supercheap sell them as well, usually a lot cheaper than Holden.

sounds like it does that pretty high klms for the water pump

the other way to check is to use a screwdriver on the housing with your ear on the end of it and listen for the noise (just be careful of moving parts)

have a look on ebay for the water pumps the go pretty cheap

It could just be the bearings in the tensioner pulley.
