Engine Whine help please!?!

Hi guys,

after scrolling through most of the forum i can't find anything similar so i hope you gurus can help!!

i noticed a whine coming from the engine(2.2 2008), had a look and it sounds like its coming from the auxillary belt area. last week took off the belt tensioner and alternator and span them to see if there was any sound. alternator sounded ok but noise from the belt tensioner bearing so i changed that. Alas still whining. A mechanic had a quick look(with stethoscope) and said he thinks its the water pump.

now i can get the water pump for about 50 but was wondering if its an easy job to change or will i need to drop it into a garage?

thanks in advance for any help
