Water pump and some new hoses

Notice after the wife went to the store some antifreeze on the floor of the garage. When she got back, took a look hoping I wasn't going to find the dreaded N62/TU 4.8l center coolant pipe issue. It looks like the two hoses and clamps will be replaced along with the true culprit, the water pump.

Now I have to decide if I should dig into the center pipe just to be safe, this 2008 X5 sport now has 97,000+ miles on it!

What do you guys who have dealt with this think, do it all or just the hoses and water pump?









Thanks Guys...

Starting to lean your way, a half a morning job verses a day or two day job!
