Water Pump Life?

I did a search in this 9-5 area to see when it's recommended to replace the water pump. Mine is a 2000 9-5 Linear with the 2.3 engine.

I don't have any leaks or noises yet, but I was wondering if 100K miles or whatever, is recommended?

Thanks in advance,

Wouldn't hurt if you wanted some peace of mind to get in there and do it.

Would make for a great chance to flush the entire cooling system, replace the tstat, change out the idler pulleys, replace the top motor mount, and put in a new belt

I would save the money and concern yourself with something else, like a fuel pump or alternator or DI cassette.

I did the pulleys and the belt about a year ago, to prep the car for a long trip. But it didn't occur to me to do the water pump...
DI cassette was done about 2 years ago under warrranty

FI pump? Are there any teltale signs of its demise? (like getting loud/noisy?)

Alternator has been bullet-proof so far. I recall R&R a brush/regulator on our old '87 900S, but that manifested itself by showing me some symptoms in advance.
