Water Pump Bearing Noise

Hello all, my MY05 has a bearing noise which is eminating from the water pump. Are there bearings in the pulley? Or do I need to replace the entire pump and pulley to eliminate the noise?

Passenger mirror not restring with seat controls.

Did it save the mirror settings in the past? You may need to have the General Module recoded, this most likely will solve the problem.
