No, but if you have to take it off while your changing the pump or if it is very close while changing the pump, wouldn't it make sense to? Timing belt are replaced on a periodic time table, usually 60,000 miles for most. Unless this has been replaced in last 30,000 miles, I would do it.

ALSO I WOULD REPLACE THE THERMOSTATA,AND ALL 3 BELTS,NOW IS THE TIME ,THEY ARE RIGHT THERE,AND ALL CHEAP PARTS.............................BUDDY MACK

i made the mistake of replaceing my water pump and not long after that the timing belt went .had too do all that work again .
