Default Timing Belt

I just bought a 2005 Pt Cruiser Convertible Touring Edition with 2.4L Turbo. It has 90,000 miles. It is time for a little maintenace. I am replacing the timing belt. QUESTION: what else would you replace at the same time while a majority of the engine is disassembled? I am thinking water pump also, but looking for opinions.

Yes, the water pump at the same time, plus the belt tensioner and while your there the serpentine and alternator belt.

Having just done this to my wife's PT, do what CREWZIN said, though I'd also add replacing the upper and lower engine mounts, since they are cheap and have to be removed anyway, and not only the timing belt tensioner, but the accessory belt tensioner, too. I did a lot of "while I was in there" stuff, including the upper and lower radiator hoses (since you need to drain the coolant anyway), as well as the plugs/wires. Some do the cam seals, too, but mine were fine.

The best tip I got (from this forum, thanks!) was to remove the passenger headlight to give you much-needed access. Also, I did NOT discharge the a/c!
