The water pump on my 1997 T4 2.5 TDI LHD Multivan has failed, and a couple of hoses damaged by oil. First a slight dip in water reservoir, then suddenly all the water drains in a steady stream, so I am stranded except to limp to somewhere for a replacement.

Back home in England my very reliable local garage would do the job - but I am in Italy. The local garage says they can get the parts but they haven't got the special tool for the job.

1. Anyone know what this mysterious tool could be?
2. Is it possible for me to change the pump without access to a ramp?
3. Has anybody any experience of breaking down in Italy and needing a repair?
4. Does a repair at a dealer cost significantly more than an independent garage/mechanic?

Any advice would be gratefully received.
