have a 2003 kia rio and am looking to change the timing belts. Is it fine to change just the timing belt itself, or should I go for a timing belt kit and change the tensioners and springs too.

Belt alone should be fine, changed loads never found a tensioner yet that was gone, kia use proper metal rollers, unlike euro boxes that use fragile plastic ones!

Any reason the water pump will need doing at the same time (as a matter of course).

One of the garages i was quoted at mentioned it as if it was a deffo' whilst another didnt mention it at all?

Where in the world are you murphwiz and how much do you charge?!
