Hi I have a 2006 Hyundai Elantra and the water pump needs to be replaced at 160,000 miles.
My question is does the timing belt need to come off from the car in order to replace the water pump. At first glance it does not appear that way
I replace the timing belt about 30,000 miles back now I seem to have a strange noise that I believe is a bearing going bad and could potentially be the water pump because I am losing anti-freeze overtime. As far as I am aware the water pump has never been replaced at least in the 60,000 miles that I have on the car it has never been replaced.

I suggest to ask this in the Elantra subforum. Likely more people around there knowing. And please, add what model/engine we are looking at ... '2006 Elantra' isn't sufficient. 2 different models, 3 different engines ...

I think the pump is not in the timing cover. Look at where the leak is dripping and you'll see the pump and it's belt. This needs to be replaced and is likely the cause of your noise as well.
